Is anyone here on Neurontin?
I wanted to know if anyone has been on it during their pregnancy...I am on it for chronic nerve pain ...
I know that it is CATEGORY C Drug...which surprised me because I read that Remicade is only CAT B
I am NOT looking to breast feed...Just wanted to know if anyone has taken this drug while pregnant..?? Thanks!

I would think this question would be best addressed to either your OBGYN doc or the physician who writes the script for it. I would imagine there are no refills and you have to see your doc for scripts regularly.

Perhaps the PDR would be an all right second choice for boning up on this particular drug and its advisability/inadvisability during pregnancy.

Good luck!
