Well, they're different molecules to start with. They likely have different physiology as well. Gabapentin
is marketed as neurontin by Pfizer. The supplement known as gaba is gamma-aminobutyric acid
. I was offered a prescription for neurontin for neuropathic pain early after diagnosis. After reading a bit about it, I decided against it. However, I haven't read much about gaba yet.
