It is classed as an anticonvulsant but is often used to help with nerve pain. It is not an opioid drug (narcotic)

Very commonly used for Fibromyalgia pain. ( I am on 300mg 4 x a day now)

Also used for headaches

It affects nerves. So seizures are a nerve response. So is any nerve pain. I took for shingles. Another kind of nerve pain. They all have factors in common. Erratic firing of nerves and severe pain from rapid firing of pain nerves. Clever they thought that out isn't it? I do hope it helps you.
