Gabapentin, an anticonvulsant, treats seizures by decreasing excitement in the brain. The medication works by changing the way the body senses pain. Researchers have studied the effects of gabapentin in patients with cancer who have neuropathic pain or symptoms of peripheral neuropathy. Gabapentin is also used in combination with other medications, such as opioids and imipramine, for the treatment of neuropathic pain and other symptoms. Researchers have also studied the effects of gabapentin on anxiety and hot flashes.
