About Amigatin Tablet

Amigatin Tablet is indicated for the management of neuropathic pain. Neuropathic pain is a chronic progressive nerve disease which causes nerve pain due to damaged sensory nerves. 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).
 
Amigatin 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. Amitriptyline works by increasing the serotonin and noradrenaline (natural substances) levels in the brain, thereby preventing the movement of pain signals in the brain. Together, Amigatin Tablet helps in providing relief from neuropathic pain.
 
You are advised to take Amigatin 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.
 
Consult your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Amigatin Tablet may cause drowsiness and dizziness, so drive only if you are alert. Please consult your doctor if you have any concerns regarding the usage of Amigatin Tablet in children. Avoid consuming alcohol along with Amigatin 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 damaged sensory nerves. The pain could be intermittent or continuous, which is felt as a 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.
