Neurontin (gabapentin) to PREVENT migraines
Some physicians are now using Neurontin (gabapentin) to PREVENT migraines.
Neurontin reduces the frequency of migraines by 50% in about half of the patients who try it. Researchers think it helps by stabilizing CNS neuronal activity.
Consider Neurontin for patients who don't benefit from the usual prophylactic meds...Depakote, beta-blockers, tricyclics, NSAIDs, etc.
