Gabapentin is not a narcotic. Most urine drug tests are used to screen for the use of narcotics and illicit substances. So, gabapentin usage should not be detected by a drug screen.

Gabapentin also is not a "scheduled" substance, which means it's not as highly controlled as other prescription pain relievers. Again, most urine drug tests are designed to detect the illicit (unprescribed) use of narcotics, scheduled substances (like benzodiazepines), and illegal substances (like marijuana). Your gabapentin usage shouldn't influence a urine drug test in any way.
