Gaben Lotion is a combination of two medicines: Gabapentin and Methylcobalamin. Gabapentin is an alpha 2 delta ligand which decreases pain by modulating calcium channel activity of the nerve cells. Methylcobalamin 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).
Gaben Lotion may be unsafe to use during pregnancy. Animal studies have shown adverse effects on the foetus, however, there are limited human studies. The benefits from use in pregnant women may be acceptable despite the risk. Please consult your doctor.
Gaben Lotion is probably safe to use during lactation.
Limited human data suggests that the drug does not represent a significant risk to the baby. Baby should be monitored for excessive sleepiness and weight gain.
Gaben Lotion may make you feel dizzy, sleepy, tired, or decrease alertness. If this happens, do not drive.
