I was just prescribed gabapentin for a migraine preventative and the bottle says to wear or carry identification that you are taking this medication. Can anyone tell me why this is?
"Carry an ID card or wear a medical alert bracelet stating that you are taking gabapentin, in case of emergency. Any doctor, dentist, or emergency medical care provider who treats you should know that you are taking a seizure medication."
Read under "Important information about gabapentin":
- Gabapentin Information for Consumers
- Gabapentin Information for Healthcare Professionals (includes dosage details)
- Side Effects of Gabapentin (detailed)
