Q: New script for gabapentin filled w/yellow and white capsule with APO 113. Is this valid gabapentin?

Gabapentin solved the problem I had with severe chronic foot pain and swelling.  I could barely get around. Finally diagnosed as neuropathy.  Have been taking gabapentin for a while now and am thankful for it!  My new prescription was filled with a different capsule - yellow and white with APO on one end and 113 on the other.  I can't find any pictures/reference to gabapentin or neurontin looking like this and I am hesitant to take it without confirmation.Thanks...

Congratulations on your recovery! According to Drugs. com that is gabapentin. The key is the code on the pills rather the way the pill itself looks. All drugs are required to a code imprinted on them and your code indicates that that is indeed gabapentin.


Good luck!
