About GABAPENTIN+METHYLCOBALAMIN+ALPHA LIPOIC ACID

ALPHA LIPOIC ACID+GABAPENTIN+METHYLCOBALAMIN is a combination medicine used to treat neuropathic pain. Neuropathic pain is a chronic progressive nerve disease that 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 that are usually not painful). ALPHA LIPOIC ACID+GABAPENTIN+METHYLCOBALAMIN may be used in the treatment of diabetic neuropathy, drug-induced neuropathy, alcoholic neuropathy, and trigeminal neuralgia.

ALPHA LIPOIC ACID+GABAPENTIN+METHYLCOBALAMIN contains Gabapentin (anti-convulsant), methylcobalamin (vitamin B12), and alpha-lipoic acid (antioxidant). Gabapentin modulates calcium channel activity of the brain cells, thereby decreasing pain. Methylcobalamin helps rejuvenate and protect damaged nerve cells by producing a substance called myelin. Alpha-lipoic acid helps provide a protective effect on the nerve tissues and brain. Together, ALPHA LIPOIC ACID+GABAPENTIN+METHYLCOBALAMIN helps provide relief from neuropathic pain caused due to nerve damage and other neurological disorders.

Patients Concern

Disease/Condition Glossary

Neuropathic pain: It is a nervous system disorder caused due to damaged 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 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. Symptoms include spontaneous, untriggered pain, unpleasant feeling, shooting, burning or stabbing pain, difficulty resting or sleeping, and evoked pain (pain caused by events that are usually not painful).
