> Allison - Is the 800mg formulation sustained release. This would mean that the Neurontin would absorb slower over a longer period of time, thus not allowing saturation of the active transport system (ie all of the 800mg is not absorbed at once, only a little at a time, allowing the transporter to "ferry" the Neurontin into the blood stream and then come back for more Neurontin in the intestine). Therefore saturation does not take place. I am not sure of this, but it would seem the most plausible explanation.

Thank you.

I don't see anywhere in the online drug information sites such as RxList that there is a sustained release version. The two sources that I found didn't list all of the available sizes, though, either. I have taken both 600mg and 800mg. Only one of the two listed the 800 and neither mentioned the 600.

On the capsules I have, there is nothing written on the pills or on the vials other than the name Neurontin. (No SR, or anything like that.) Hmmmm. I should look up the Parke Davis site.
