my persciption bottle says gabapentin by tevau substituted for neurontin. Is gabapentin generic for neorontin and neurontin is spelled incorrectly. I would also like to know who manufactures this drug.

Thumbs up Re: neorontin-gabapentin

Thanks so much for the information. This medication has helped me tremendously along with surgery. I am restricted on how much I can lift but at least I have free movement compaired to lying still and barely moving for 2 years. This medication reliefs inflamation when I forget I have limitations. The sugery (L5) and this medicine has been a God send for me.
Thanks again dam50

Re: neorontin-gabapentin

Neurontin/gabapentin was a huge help with my autonomic neuropathy/dysfunction. Several years ago, it made the difference between working and having to stop. Now, due to many medical issues, I'm on disability, but the Neurontin (which I still take, in generic form) definitely made a difference.
