Neurontin is an anti-seizure medication. It is sold in the United States under the trade name Neurontin or Gabapentin
Neurontin is used in combination with other antiseizure (anticonvulsant) drugs to manage partial seizures with or without generalization in individuals over the age of 12. Neurontin can also be used to treat partial seizures in children between the ages of three and 12. Off-label uses (legal uses not specifically approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration [FDA]) include treatment of severe, chronic pain caused by nerve damage (such as occurs in shingles, diabetic neuropathy, multiple sclerosis, or post-herpetic neuralgia). Studies are also looking at using Neurontin to treat bipolar disorder (also known as manic-depressive disorder).
