Gabapentin enacarbil (Horizant, XP-13512) is a prodrug for the anticonvulsant and analgesic drug gabapentin. It was designed for increased oral bioavailability over gabapentin, and human trials showed it to produce extended release of gabapentin with almost twice the overall bioava...

Gabapetin versus Horizant
I have been taking Pramipexole for several years to help my RLS and to help my sleep problem.
The RLS continued to worsen but I continued to take it as it seemed to help me sleep.
My doctor put me on Horizant but that did no good so I quit taking it but continued the Pramipexole.
A few months ago another doctor prescribed Gabapetin for my RLS and overnight my RLS all but disappeared.
A couple of days after that miracle I forgot to take the Pramipexole and the RLS came back.
When I took it again, the RLS stopped.
I then experimented and twice did not take the Pramipexole and each time the RLS returned.
It is clear to me that as long as I take the Pramipexole and Gabapetin in conjunction my RLS is a thing of the past.
If I take either by itself, the RLS returns.
Now comes the confusing part:
I have learned that Gabapetin and Horizant are the same thing, with different names.
If that is the case why does the Gabapetin solve my problem when the Horizant did not?
