Gabapentin 1%, 5%, 10% Cream or Gel
Gabapentin topical creams and gels have been shown to be effective for treating chronic neuropathic pain. Neuropathic pain is pain coming from damaged nerves. It differs from pain messages carried along healthy nerves from damaged tissue that can come from a burn or a cut. Medicines like ibuprofen and other NSAIDS, which are effective for certain types of pain, are not effective in treating neuropathic pain.
Gabapentin diminishes pain transmission in damaged neurons through affecting glutamate receptors. Conditions that respond well to gabapentin cream or gel include:
- Postherpetic neuralgia
- Diabetic neuropathy
- Generalized vulvodynia
