How Gabantin Tablet works

Gabantin Forte Tablet is a combination of two medicines: Gabapentin and Methylcobalamin/Mecobalamin. Gabapentin is an alpha 2 delta ligand which decreases pain by modulating calcium channel activity of the nerve cells. Methylcobalamin/Mecobalamin is a form of vitamin B which helps in the production of myelin, a substance that protects nerve fibers and rejuvenates damaged nerve cells. Together, they relieve neuropathic pain (pain from damaged nerves).

FAQs

Q. What is Gabantin?

Gabantin is a combination of two medicines: Gabapentin and Methylcobalamin. This medication is useful in the treatment of pain due to nerve damage (peripheral neuropathy). This medication works by regenerating damaged nerves in the body and decreasing the pain sensation.

Q. What is peripheral neuropathy?

The nerves in the periphery of your body, such as the nerves in your toes and fingertip are called peripheral nerves and any damage to one or more of these nerves is called peripheral neuropathy. These nerves carry messages to/from the brain and spinal cord from/to the rest of the body. A damage caused to these nerves stops them from functioning properly and the messages traveling between your central and peripheral nervous system get disrupted.

Q. Can I stop taking Gabantin when my pain is relieved?

No, take Gabantin for the full prescribed length of time. Your symptoms may improve before the nerves are completely regenerated and healed.

Q. Can the use of Gabantin cause sleepiness?

Yes, the most common side effect of Gabantin is sleepiness. Do not drive, operate heavy machinery or engage in other activities that need your full attention. Do not drink alcohol while taking Gabantin as it can lead to severe sleepiness , causing falls or accidents.

Q. Can I take a higher than the recommended dose of this medicine?

No, taking a higher than the recommended dose of Gabantin can lead to increased chances of side effects and toxicity. If you are experiencing increased severity of your symptoms that are not relieved by the recommended doses, please consult your doctor for re-evaluation.
