Neurontin for Epilepsy

Neurontin® (gabapentin) is a prescription medicine approved for the treatment of chronic nerve pain that commonly occurs after an outbreak of shingles (known medically as postherpetic neuralgia). Healthcare providers also often prescribe Neurontin for epilepsy. It is approved to be used along with other seizure medications to treat partial seizures in adults and children as young as three years old.
Neurontin was studied as a treatment for partial seizures in people with epilepsy. These studies included people who were already taking other seizure medications and whose seizures were not adequately controlled. In one study, up to 23 percent of people who added Neurontin to their epilepsy medications experienced seizures half as frequently as before, compared to just 9 percent of a similar group of people who did not take the drug.
