A.
Gabapentin is the generic name for a prescription drug used to treat seizures, nerve pain, and other problems.

Gabapentin is produced by different manufacturers under various brand names, including Neurontin, Gralise, Fanatrex, Gabarone, Neogab, and Nupentin.

All of these medications contain the same active ingredients. The formulation of the non-active ingredients (binders, colorings) may be different. However, the medications should work exactly the same when you take them. You should not notice any difference between taking Gralise and Neurontin, for example.

If you had been taking Gralise and suddenly received Neurontin when you refilled your prescription, you can talk to your pharmacist to find out why. However, it shouldn't matter which specific brand name you take. They should work the same for you.

Hope this helps!
