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 neuronal activity in the brain.
Suggest Neurontin for patients who don't benefit from the usual prophylactic meds...Depakote, beta-blockers, tricyclics, NSAIDs, etc.
