In the current era seizures and epilepsy are the most common and incapacitating neurological conditions that affect all ages. Surprisingly, more than 65 million individuals (about 3.2m of the world population) suffer from epilepsy and seizures. Gabapentin is the most widely used drug to treat seizures and epilepsy and also has some other dominant purposes. It was introduced in 1993 as an anticonvulsant for the treatment of seizures, but recently it’s thought to be convenient for chronic perioperative prophylaxis, chronic post-operative pain, postoperative nausea and vomiting, and alcohol disorder. It acts on the brain by inhibiting the alpha-2delta-1 receptor and ligand-gated ion channel (GABA) present in the brain which inhibit or decrease the production of excitatory neurotransmitters. This article evaluates the therapeutic potential of gabapentin, dosage, and pharmacodynamics with the goal of providing referable aspects.
