Some considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Horizant include the following:
- It is very important to understand that Horizant is not equivalent to other gabapentin products, such as Neurontin® or Gralise™. These products cannot be used interchangeably, and people who are switched from one product to another may need to have their dosage adjusted.
- You must swallow the tablets whole; do not chew, cut, crush, or dissolve them, as this causes the medication to be released too quickly.
- For this medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
- If you are unsure about anything related to your Horizant dosage, please talk to your healthcare provider, pharmacist, or nurse.
