Gabapentin is not a muscle relaxer. The mechanism by which Gabapentin exerts its analgesic action is unknown, but in animal models of analgesia, Gabapentin prevents allodynia (pain-related behavior in response to a normally innocuous stimulus) and hyperalgesia (exaggerated response to painful stimuli). It is more for pain caused by neuropathy or nerve pain.
Hope this helps,
