Medical Overview
Introduction
Gabapen 100 is a medicine used to relieve the pain caused by nerve damage (neuropathic pain) due to various conditions like diabetes, shingles (herpes zoster infection), spinal cord injury, etc. It is also used to treat certain types of seizures (fits) in combination with other medicines. Gabapen 100 belongs to the anti-epileptic group of medicines. You may take it with or without food, but it is important to take this medicine at the same time each day to get the most benefit. The exact dose and duration of treatment will depend on your condition and how you respond to it. Your doctor will probably start this medicine at a low dose and increase it gradually. It may take a few weeks for the medicine to work properly. Follow your doctor's instructions and continue taking it regularly until your doctor advises you to stop. Do not miss any dose, otherwise, your condition may worsen. Most people taking Gabapen 100 do not experience any side effects. The most common ones are feeling sleepy, dizzy, or tired (fatigue). These are usually mild and go away by themselves as your body gets used to the medicine. Most side effects are not serious and do not need medical attention. Talk to your doctor if any of the side effects persist or worry you. You should avoid drinking alcohol along with this medicine as it may lead to excessive sleepiness and dizziness. Let your doctor know right away if you develop any unusual mood changes like anxiety, agitation, depression, or thoughts about harming yourself. Before taking Gabapen 100, you should tell your doctor if you have any kidney-related problems or if you are more than 65 years old. Your doctor may prescribe a different dose in such people. Women who are pregnant, breastfeeding or planning to become pregnant should also consult their doctor before using this medicine.

How Gabapen 100 works
Gabapen 100 is an antiepileptic medication. When given for epilepsy, it is believed to work by reducing the abnormal electrical activity in the brain, thus preventing seizures. It is also used to treat nerve pain where it blocks pain by interfering with pain signals travelling through the damaged nerves and the brain.

  • Avoid taking antacids 2 hours before or after taking Gabapen 100 as they make it harder for your body to absorb the medicine.
  • It may cause sleepiness. Do not drive or do anything requiring concentration until you know how it affects you.
  • Inform your doctor if you develop any unusual changes in mood or behavior, new or worsening depression, or suicidal thoughts or behavior.

Contraindication

Mode of Action
Gabapentin is structurally related to the neurotransmitter GABA but is neither a GABA agonist nor antagonist. High affinity gabapentin binding sites are located throughout the brain. These sites correspond to the presence of voltage-gated Ca channels particularly controlling the ?-2/?-1 subunit. This channel appears to be located presynaptically and may modulate the release of excitatory neurotransmitters which participate in epileptogenesis and nociception.
Precaution
Discontinuation or transfer from other antiepileptics, history of psychotic illness; renal impairment; pregnancy. Gradual withdrawal over at least 7 days to prevent an increase in seizure frequency. Lactation: Enters breast milk; use with caution
