Contain the active ingredient : Gabapentin which works in the brain and nervous system. The exact way in which gabapentin works is not fully understood.
Gabapentin appears to affect the build-up of electrical signals in the nerve cells, as well as affecting the activity of neurotransmitters in the brain and nervous system, mainly GABA and glutamate.
GABA is a neurotransmitter that acts as a natural ‘nerve-calming’ agent and helps to keep the nerve activity in the brain in balance.
Glutamate acts as a natural ‘nerve-exciting’ agent, that is released when electrical signals build up in nerve cells, this excites more nerve cells – this is thought to play a key role in causing epileptic seizures and transmitting pain signals to the brain.
Gabapentin appears to increase GABA and decrease glutamate levels, which helps keep the nerve activity in the brain more balanced.
What is it used for?
Treating nerve pain referred to as neuropathic pain, such as diabetic neuropathy or post-herpetic neuralgia, which occurs after having shingles.
