Gabapentin and buprenorphine nasal insufflation in a patient on buprenorphine for opiod use disorder
Upon introduction into the market, gabapentin was not thought to be a drug with abuse potential. Newer research is showing this to be possible, especially in the population of patients with a history of opioid addiction. Clinicians should pay special attention to the use of gabapentin in clinic settings and be wary of the abuse potential it carries, especially in high-risk populations.
