about promoting Neurontin for off-label uses
The recent television exposé about promoting Neurontin for off-label uses is drawing attention to Neurontin's unapproved uses.
Neurontin (gabapentin) is only APPROVED for epilepsy and postherpetic neuralgia. But it's often used for other conditions.
Neuropathic pain is the most common off-label use. In addition to postherpetic neuralgia, it's also beneficial for diabetic neuropathy.
