Additional Details

For the treatment of adult Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) and postherpetic neuralgia (PHN).
Since gabapentin enacarbil is a prodrug of gabapentin, it’s physiological effects are the same as gabapentin. Concerning PHN, gabapentin prevents allodynia and hyperalgesia.
Mode of Action:
Although the exact mechanism of action of gabapentin in RLS and PHN is unknown, it is presumed to involve the descending noradrenergic system, resulting in the activation of spinal alpha2-adrenergic receptors.
Gabapentin enacarbil does not interact with any of the major cytochrome P450 enzymes.
Most common adverse reactions are headache, dizziness, and somnolence.
