"Gabapentin is an anti-epileptic medication, also called an anticonvulsant. It affects chemicals and nerves in the body that are involved in the cause of seizures and some types of pain.
Gabapentin is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat seizures caused by epilepsy in adults and children who are at least 12 years old. Gabapentin is also used with other medications to treat partial seizures in children who are 3 to 12 years old.
Gabapentin is also used in adults to treat nerve pain caused by herpes virus or shingles (herpes zoster), and to treat restless legs syndrome (RLS)."

Hey lonely, I take gabapentin 300mg. daily and it is a fantastic pain medication. It works on nerve pain, although as with all meds, it can have some nasty side effects. 300mg is the minimum dose. You can go up to 1200mg three times a day. I wish that I still could take that amount for my spinal problems, but 300mg at night helps me wake up the next day and move without waiting for several hours before the pain is under control. Good luck!
