Prevent Seizures With Help Of Anticonvulsant Medication - Daynighthealthcare

By Expert Author: John Wharton

Gabapentin is a medicine which is used in partial epilepsy, secondarily generalised partial epilepsy and peripheral neuropathic pain.

Mechanism of action :

Neurontin capsules 300mg contain gabapentin, an anticonvulsant that is thought to work by controlling certain neurotransmitters (chemicals that allow nerve cells to communicate) that send nerve signals from the brain causing seizures or nerve pain. These capsules are an analogue of, and have a similar chemical structure to the neurotransmitter GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid). GABA is the major inhibitory neurotransmitter that reduces transmission of nerve signals from the brain to other parts of the central nervous system. These capsules does not work through the same receptors as GABA and therefore has a different mechanism of action to other GABA analogues like barbiturates and benzodiazepines, however, it does bind to a receptor in the brain, that has yet to be determined and it is thought to control neurotransmission via voltage-gated calcium channels, which are ion channels in the cell membranes of nerve cells involved in the propagation of electrical signals. These capsules 300mg reduce the amount of nerve excitation that causes epileptic seizures and nerve pain, which helps control symptoms associated with epilepsy and neuropathic pain.
