For seizures, gabapentin helps to control abnormal electrical activity in the brain, reducing the frequency and severity of seizures. It is often used in combination with other seizure medications.

Gabapentin is also prescribed for nerve pain conditions such as neuropathy, which can be caused by conditions like diabetes, shingles, or spinal cord injury. It helps to calm down overactive nerve signals that cause pain, tingling, or burning sensations.

This medication is generally taken orally in the form of capsules, tablets, or a liquid. The dosage and frequency of taking gabapentin will depend on the specific condition being treated, and it is essential to follow the doctor's instructions carefully.
