Verwon Says:

Since both Gabapentin and Pregabalin are anticonvulsants, they are not usually included on most drug screens. Such tests generally only check for opiates, benzodiazepines, stimulants and substances that may be illegal, such as marijuana, according to FDA reports.

While these medications can help with some types of nerve pain, and mood disorders, they do not fall under any of these categories.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Martin Irving Says:

You are correct in the tests, they test for illegal drugs or proscription drugs of abuse if suspected.... like benzodiazepines. However..... Neurontin metabolises in your system .... into what pregablin already is if you understand. Pregablin was designed so the body did not need to metabolise and works by itself.

I am in a suboxone program and get urine screened weekly. Im also prescribed neurontin. I know this is an old post but I can tell you from my experience that they do test for neurontin and lyrica now. I've taken lyrica just before a screen and they never said anything to me about it. I'm pretty sure they metabolize to the same thing and show up the same. But that's just from my experience.

This drug testing place sells 2 separate tests. 1 for Lyrica and 1 for gabapentin. So take that how u will but looks to me like 2 separate tests are needed.

They have an individual test for gabapentin. I know because drug court had me tested. It's a single test just for gabapentin. Also Lyrica showed up on that test.

Whatever!! Neurotin and Lyrica don't look anything close to the same meds. Neurontin looks like a horse pill whereas Lyrica is a slender capsule. It’s people like you who make it hard for those actually trying to fly right! So either learn how to make a better excuse or straighten up.

The size or shape or color if a pill has nothing to do with not being the same medication. They both used for the same things. Nerve pain or nerve damage. Some things are different, but they're pretty much used for the same thing. Gabs are big, Lyrica is small. But oxycodone is also tiny, yet it can pack a punch.

Maybe you're the one who should get their facts str8. WE'RE NOT DOCTORS and neither are you.
