Overview Information on Gabapentin
Pharmacist Tip
Gabapentin comes in different forms for different purposes. Make sure you check with your doctor to be sure you're not taking more than one gabapentin medicine.     
Gabapentin is an anticonvulsant medicine. Your doctor may have prescribed gabapentin to you to treat a number of conditions, including seizures and restless legs syndrome, or for nerve pain from having the shingles (postherpetic neuralgia).

Restless legs syndrome is a disorder that causes people to feel an urge to move their legs to relieve an uncomfortable feeling that often occurs when they are sitting or at rest. Gabapentin can help ease that discomfort. Gabapentin also reduces pain from postherpetic neuralgia, which is caused by damage to the nerves from the shingles virus.
