Gabapentin is an anticonvulsant that has also been shown to help with certain types of nerve pain and mood disorders and, as such, it is not a substance that is tested for on standard drug tests.

However, the half-life for your body to process it out is from 5 to 7 hours and total elimination time is usually 5 to 6 half-lives, so you'd be looking at 30 to 42 hours for it to be processed out of your body entirely.

Is there anything else I can help with?

A standard 13 panel cup does not test for neurontin but if a urine screen is sent to a lab it does!!

I am in the suboxone program and I showed up for taking neurontin also. It had never showed up, They just recently started testing for them. How long does it really take to get gabapentin out of your system? Some people have told me 24 hours some says 2 days. I guess the best thing would be not to take the neurontin but they help me so much i have a lot of pain in my stomach and they also seem to help my anxiety some. But I have quit taking them. Wish me luck guys you all have been very helpful with your comments, Its also nice to know that Im not the only one who was taking these. They used to not test for them but the guy who does group said that they i guess they is the fda and insurance people have found out that people are buying these on the street, Some people say that they aint worth taking but if you take enough of them they help alot. I have heard them be called "the miracle drug" i guess they call them this because neurontin is very useful for just about everything. It is good for pain caused by nerves it helps your nerves too but it doesnt knock you out as long as you are careful with them. But I am not taking them any more dont wanna take any chances and mess my program up because I really do want to get better.

Not true. It was found in my urine and my dr only uses the dipstick drug test. He actually thought I had taken ecstasy and I told him I had taken neurontin, he then explained that gabapentin is in ecstasy so be sure to explain if it does show and they dont know.

I took several neurontin in a months time. I went to my suboxine Dr. And tested positive, I quit taking then 2 days before my appointment. How long does it really stay in your system?? I take them for my back and hip and my family Dr. Will not prescribe them to me. They are the only thing that helps me I've tried all the drugs my Dr. Has prescribed my but they do not work. So please someone let me know how long they stay in your system I don't want another positive result on my urine screen. Thanks for your help.

I would talk to your sub Dr about it and in the meantime definitely stop taking it. I've heard it will show after 48 hours. You don't want to get kicked out of the sub program. Trust me its not worth it. Just be honest and proactive in your recovery. If you explain to him what's going on, he may be ok with you taking it but don't chance it otherwise.

Hey there so i have been on subs for 152 days i stopped taking the subs 3 weeks ago using the gabapentin to help ease me off. You should go to your regular doctor tell them you need the gabapentin to help get off the subs( exactly what i did) get some good sleep medicine also. As i sit here and type to you i am so happy i did. Subs are addicting and very bad. I feel amazing i am so clear and happy i wake up refreshed and happy. It is awesome to be able to wake up clean and clear. you will notice things everyday you hated on drugs and now its amazing.
