Gabica 75mg Capsules 35’s
Gabica 75mg Capsules contains Pregabalin 75mg, which treats seizures and neuropathic pain. It is an antiepileptic medication. It decreases pain and seizures by modulating the calcium channel activity of the nerve cells. Gabica (Pregabalin) is an analog of the neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). It has analgesic and anticonvulsant activity. Pregabalin reduces neuronal calcium currents by binding to the alpha-2-delta subunit of voltage-gated calcium channels in the CNS tissues. This particular mechanism may be responsible for neuropathic pain anxiety and other syndromes. It is inactive at serotonin and dopamine receptors and does not inhibit dopamine serotonin or noradrenaline reuptake. Gabica 75mg capsules contain Pregabalin 75 mg, which treats seizures and neuropathic pain.
