there's a new drug approved, i think i may have mentioned it before, but it didn't get approved yet, it just was a drug application actually. it's a form of gabapentin, but modified for RLS. has anyone tried it? with any good results yet?

http://www.drugs.com/horizant.html here's a taste. I think it's basically the same thing as gabapentin except more bioavailability. I'd be willing to try it next time i go to the neuro.

Horizant is an FDA approved drug as of April 6, 2011. It's only approved for RLS right now - no seizure indications. The only difference between this and Neruotin is the salt form (Neruontin is straight gabapentin; Horizant is gabapentin enacarbil).

From what I read, based on the page that you provided, it does state that you can't interchange the use of Neurontin and Horizant.

From the OP's links page official wording:

"Horizant is not the same medicine as gabapentin (for example, Neurontin or Gralise) and should not be used in its place."

Just wanted you to be aware so that people don't trade one med for the other.
