Does gabapentin help with bad headaches after a stroke?

Answers (1)

11 Jan 2011

To my understanding gabapentin works primarily on neurologic pain. Depending on the root cause of the headaches it may work very well. I, however, am on gabapentin and am suffering from very severe headaches. The doctors are still trying to figure out the root cause(s) of my headaches.
