Gabapin 300 mg Basic Details
What is Gabapin 300 mg?
Gabapin 300 mg Tablet belongs to a class of 'anticonvulsants,' primarily used to treat partial seizures (epilepsy) and various conditions of nerve pain/damage like post-herpetic neuralgia. Epilepsy is a neurological condition in which the brain's activity becomes abnormal with seizures episodes, sometimes losing awareness or consciousness. Neuralgia is a chronic pain condition of the nerves that occurs due to nerve damage or other neurological conditions like neuropathy, trigeminal neuralgia or shingles.
What is The Main Ingredient of Gabapin 300mg?
Gabapin 300 mg Tablet consists of two drugs: Gabapentin (anticonvulsant) and Methylcobalamin (Mecobalamin or vitamin B12). Gabapentin treats seizures or fits by balancing chemical messengers (neurotransmitters) in the brain, furtherly reducing their abnormal excitement in the brain. Methylcobalamin is a coenzyme form of vitamin B12. It rejuvenates and protects damaged nerve cells by producing a substance called myelin. It also regulates body functions, such as cell multiplication, blood formation, and protein synthesis. Together, Gabapin 300 mg Tablet helps provide relief from neuropathic pain caused due to nerve damage and other neurological disorders.
