Extractions: a Blockbuster Drug This web site is intended only as a reference for use in an ongoing partnership between doctor and patient in the vigilant management of the patient's health. It is not a substitute for a doctor's professional judgment , and serves only as a reminder of concerns that may need discussion. All users are urged to consult with a physician before beginning or discontinuing use of any prescription drug or undertaking any form of self-treatment. This website does not list every possible adverse reaction, interaction, precaution and effect of a drug; and all information is presented without guarantees by the authors and consultants who disclaim all liability in connection with its use. A March 14, 2002, New York Times article revealed that the manufacturer of the seizure medication gabapentin (NEURONTIN) illegally promoted the drug to prescribing physicians for at least 11 "off-label" (unapproved) medical conditions, using their own employees, euphemistically called "medical liaisons." Many of the bases for the safety and effectiveness of gabapentin for these 11 unapproved uses appears to have been fabrications by the corporation. This included paying physicians to appear as the authors of medical journal articles on unapproved uses for gabapentin when the articles had actually been written by others working under the direction of the companys marketing department.
