Neurontin contains the generic drug Gabapentin. This is acts via GABA, i.e. gamma amino butyric acid. GABA is an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the nervous system and decreases the activity of neurons. Neurontin is used in the management of epilepsy to decrease the frequency and intensity of convulsions. Generally Neurontin is not used for the treatment of generalized seizures or Grand-Mal epilepsy. It is used in the treatment of partial seizures which may or may not have secondary generalization. Occasionally, Neurontin has been used in the treatment of neuropathic pain that is seen in diabetic neuropathy or in herpes zoster; as well as to lessen the pain of trigeminal neuralgia. Neurontin also has a prophylactic effect on migraines. In the management of epilepsy, Neurontin is generally used as a second line drug along with other anti-epileptic agents.
- How Neurontin Works: Neurontin stabilizes the electrical activity in the brain. Epileptic seizures are a result of excessive firing of neurons in the brain. The brain becomes over-stimulated when abnormally rapid and repetitive signals are released in the brain. Usually these signals are carefully regulated and maintain normal functioning of the brain and nerves. Neurontin helps achieve this balanced electrical activity by suppressing the excessive activity seen in epileptic patients at the time of a seizure. Neurontin acts via the neurotransmitter GABA. GABA functions as an inhibitory transmitter and decreases the firing of neurons. Neurontin increases GABA release but does not act on the GABAA receptors directly. It modifies maximal electroshock and PTZ induced clonic seizures. It reduces seizure frequency in refractive partial seizures with or without generalization. Since the structure of Neurontin (Gabapentin) is similar to that of GABA, it is thought to act by mimicking the actions of GABA and facilitating the release of GABA from the nerve endings. This function allows the use of Neurontin in neuropathic pain which is due to a disturbance in the function of nerves.
- How To Take Neurontin: Buy Neurontin No Prescription is used as a second line drug in the management of epilepsy. It is added to a first line drug in the treatment of refractory partial seizures which may or may not have generalization. No change in the dose of the primary anti-epileptic drug is required when Neurontin Canada is added to therapy. It has occasionally been used as monotherapy in the treatment of simple and complex partial seizures. Neurontin No Prescription is also effective when used for the treatment of neuropathic pain seen in trigeminal neuralgia, post herpetic neuralgia and diabetic neuropathy, and for migraine prophylaxis.
Neurontin Without Prescription is available as oral capsules in the strengths of 100 mg, 300 mg, 400 mg, 600 mg and 800 mg as well as an oral suspension with a concentration of 250 mg/5 ml for use in children.
In the treatment of epilepsy with partial seizures, Buy Neurontin is given a total daily dose of 900-1800 mg/day divided into 300-800 mg taken thrice a day. Higher doses of 2400 mg/day have been used in some patients. For the treatment of post herpetic neuralgia, treatment is started with 300 mg taken on first day which can be escalated to a daily dose of 1800 mg/day taken in divided doses.
- Precautions And Side Effects Of Neurontin: Buy Neurontin Without Prescription should be used with caution in elderly patients, in children, in diabetic patients and in those with mixed seizures including absence seizures. It is important that doses of Buy Neurontin Canada should not be missed. It can cause dizziness and patients on this medicine should not drive or operate heavy machinery while taking Buy Neurontin.
Commonly seen side effects of Neurontin No Prescription include drowsiness, fever, dizziness and ataxia. Other effects seen are change in appetite, confusion, headache, visual disturbances, high blood pressure and GI disturbances. More serious effects of Neurontin Without Prescription are suicidal ideation and depression, leukopaenia, emotional lability, increased incidence of infections, purpura and allergic reactions.
