Neurontin 300 mg Generic


Neurontin: some background information

During treatment for epilepsy, the anticonvulsant Neurontin (also referred to as Gabapentin) is utilized because it is highly effective in managing partial seizures (convulsions). Neurontin is not effective in treating epilepsy and is only prescribed to patients to control their seizure symptoms while they are taking the medication.

In addition, Neurontin may be prescribed to adults suffering from postherpetic neuralgia in order to alleviate their pain (health condition accompanied by pain occurring after shingles). Neurontin can also be used to treat neurological conditions in the brain, such as seizures, while at the same time reducing the patient's level of discomfort. It is not possible to treat the discomfort caused by arthritis or other minor injuries with Neurontin.

Neurontin is a medication that can only be obtained with a prescription from a medical professional. The following formulations of Neurontin are available to consumers as dosage forms:
