Neurotin Capsules (Gabapentin) by Life Pharmaceutical Company
Drug Category: GABA Analogue
Indication: Gabapentin is primarily indicated in conditions like Epilepsy, Neuropathic pain, Partial seizures, and Partial seizures with secondary generalization.
Each Capsule contains:
- Gabapentin…………………….….300mg/ 400mg
- Gabapentin:Gabapentin interacts with cortical neurons at auxillary subunits of voltage-sensitive calcium channels. Gabapentin increases the synaptic concentration of GABA, enhances GABA responses at non-synaptic sites in neuronal tissues, and reduces the release of mono-amine neurotransmitters. One of the mechanisms implicated in this effect of gabapentin is the reduction of the axon excitability measured as an amplitude change of the presynaptic fibre volley (FV) in the CA1 area of the hippocampus. This is mediated through its binding to presynaptic NMDA receptors. Other studies have shown that the antihyperalgesic and antiallodynic effects of gabapentin are mediated by the descending noradrenergic system, resulting in the activation of spinal alpha2-adrenergic receptors. Gabapentin has also been shown to bind and activate the adenosine A1 receptor.
