About AMIGABA TABLET

AMIGABA TABLET is a combination medicine used for the management of neuropathic pain. Neuropathic pain is a chronic progressive nerve disease which causes nerve pain due to damage of sensory nerves. Neuropathic pain might be associated with abnormal sensations such as pain from the usually non-painful stimulus.
 
AMIGABA TABLET is a combination of two drugs: Gabapentin (anti-convulsant) and Amitriptyline (tricyclic antidepressant). Gabapentin works by binding to the specific site on voltage-gated calcium channels; this helps relieve nerve pain and lowers the risk of seizures. Amitriptyline works by increasing the serotonin and noradrenaline (natural substances) level in the brain, thereby preventing the movement of pain signals in the brain. Together, AMIGABA TABLET helps in providing relief from neuropathic pain.
 
Take AMIGABA TABLET with or without food. Swallow AMIGABA TABLET as a whole with a glass of water; do not chew, or break the tablet. You are advised to take AMIGABA TABLET for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you depending on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience certain common side-effects such as dizziness, sleepiness, tiredness, headache, nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, and dry mouth. Most of these side-effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to talk to your doctor if you experience these side-effects persistently.
 
Please do not stop taking AMIGABA TABLET without consulting your doctor as it could cause withdrawal symptoms. Consult your doctor immediately if you are having suicidal thoughts while taking AMIGABA TABLET. Do not take AMIGABA TABLET if you are pregnant or breastfeeding unless prescribed by the doctor. AMIGABA TABLET causes drowsiness and dizziness, so drive only if you are alert. AMIGABA TABLET should not be given to children unless prescribed. Avoid consuming alcohol along with AMIGABA TABLET as it could lead to increased dizziness and sleepiness. Keep your doctor informed about your health condition and medicines to rule out any side-effects.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Neuropathic pain: Neuropathic pain is caused due to damage to sensory nerves. It is caused by chronic progressive nerve disease, or due to infection or injury. The pain could be intermittent or continuous, which is felt as prickling, stabbing, tingling or burning sensation. A feeling of numbness and loss of sensations is also common with neuropathic pain. Usually, the body sends the pain signals when there is an injury, but with neuropathic pain, the pain is not triggered by an injury, the body unpromptedly sends the pain signals. Symptoms include spontaneous, untriggered pain, unpleasant feeling, shooting, burning or stabbing pain, difficulty resting or sleeping, and evoked pain (pain caused by events usually not painful).
