How Gaben Lotion works

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).

FAQs

Q. What is Gaben Lotion?

Gaben Lotion 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. What is the recommended storage condition for the Gaben Lotion?

Keep this medicine in the container or the pack it came in, tightly closed. Store it according to the instructions mentioned on the pack or label. Dispose of the unused medicine. Make sure it is not consumed by pets, children and other people.
