The mechanism of action for neurontin is unknown for both neuropathic pain and its anticonvulsant effect. Although structurally related to GABA, it does not bind to GABA receptors or inhibit its reuptake - nor does it bind to benzodiazepine receptors. Studies with rats have shown gabapentin binding with areas of the brain such as the neocortex and hippocampus. Hope this helps. Good luck.
