No, Neurontin is not addictive. However, it's not a drug that you should stop taking abruptly because doing so can actually cause seizures. When stopping it, it's important to taper off slowly under the care of a doctor.

I think it's safe to say that all medicine is addictive. I know that there are members here that are addicted to OTC Tylenol as well as things like eye drops and nose spray.

i do agree with peace, anything can be addictive, so i guess my reply was not 100% correct. I have heard of peps being addicted to everything so if you feel its a problem....it is a problem!!!

You could be right though.. I just know that from what other members have posted, I was amazed when I saw/heard/read that so many people were addicted to the weirdest things....but then again, some people could view us as weird for being addicted to pain pills, you know? HAHA!

yeah you are right, and we prob are a little wierd, and perhaps it has nothing to do with pain pills, but yeah i seen on here about a moth ball addiction?????????? i did not know rather it was a joke or not so i did the smart thing and said nothing. But on a real note, people all are differant and you never know what might get you, be your weakness, get you hooked........so its best to avoid!!!!!

Thanks to you and everyone else who gave me input concerning neurontin. I started it last night and it seems like it is reasonably safe for me. Thanks again!
