  • Product Name: Gabapentin Enacarbil
  • CAS #: 478296-72-9
  • Mode of Action:

    Although the exact mechanism of action of gabapentin in RLS and PHN is unknown, it is presumed to involve the descending noradrenergic system, resulting in the activation of spinal alpha2-adrenergic receptors.

  • Pharmacodynamics:

    Since gabapentin enacarbil is a prodrug of gabapentin, it's physiological effects are the same as gabapentin. Concerning PHN, gabapentin prevents allodynia and hyperalgesia.

  • Metabolism:

    Gabapentin enacarbil does not interact with any of the major cytochrome P450 enzymes.

  • Toxicity:

    Most common adverse reactions are headache, dizziness, and somnolence.
