What Is Gabapentin?
Gabapentin is a prescription anticonvulsant medication commonly known by the brand name Neurontin. Gabapentin is available in a pill, capsule, and oral solution form. This drug has also been used to treat epilepsy and postherpetic neuralgia.
By decreasing abnormal activity in the brain, Gabapentin can prevent seizures and muscle spasms. Also, it may alter how the body reacts to pain signals.
Though Gabapentin is not an opioid, it has been known to enhance the effects of other opioids when taken. It is for this reason that gabapentin use may need to be monitored by a medical professional
