Gabapentin is a prescription medication that is primarily used to treat seizures and nerve pain, such as that caused by shingles or diabetic neuropathy. It is also sometimes used off-label to treat other conditions, such as anxiety or restless leg syndrome.
Gabapentin works by affecting the release of certain neurotransmitters in the brain, which can help to reduce abnormal activity in the nervous system and alleviate pain. Gabapentin is available in capsules, tablets, and oral solution, and is typically taken two to three times per day with or without food.
Common side effects of gabapentin may include drowsiness, dizziness, headache, nausea, and dry mouth.
It is important to use gabapentin only as directed by a healthcare professional, as it can have serious side effects and can interact with other medications.
