Effect of gabapentin on hyperemesis gravidarum: a double-blind, randomized controlled trial.

Am J Obstet Gynecol MFM 2021 01 29;3(1):100273. Epub 2020 Oct 29.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Rochester, Rochester, NY.

Background: Hyperemesis gravidarum is a disabling disease of nausea, vomiting, and undernutrition in early pregnancy for which there are no effective outpatient therapies. Poor weight gain in hyperemesis gravidarum is associated with several adverse fetal outcomes including preterm delivery, low birthweight, small for gestational age, low 5-minute Apgar scores, and neurodevelopmental delay. Gabapentin is most commonly used clinically for treating neuropathic pain but also substantially reduces chemotherapy-induced and postoperative nausea and vomiting. Read More

Enduring alterations in hippocampal astrocytesynaptic proximity following adolescent alcohol exposure: reversal by gabapentin.

Neural Regen Res 2020 Aug;15(8):1496-1501

Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, NC, USA.

Adolescent alcohol abuse is a substantive public health problem that has been the subject of intensive study in recent years. Despite reports of a wide range of effects of adolescent intermittent ethanol (AIE) exposure on brain and behavior, little is known about the mechanisms that may underlie those effects, and even less about treatments that might reverse them. Recent studies from our laboratory have indicated that AIE produced enduring changes in astrocyte function and synaptic activity in the hippocampal formation, suggesting the possibility of an alteration in astrocyte-neuronal connectivity and function.

Utilization of gabapentin by people in treatment for substance use disorders in Belgium (2011-2014): a cross-sectional study.

Arch Public Health 2018 19;76:17. Epub 2018 Mar 19.

Department of Public Health and Surveillance, Scientific Institute of Public Health, Brussels, Belgium, Rue Juliette Wytsmanstraat, 14, 1050 Brussels, Belgium.

Background: Although gabapentin has been licensed in the European Union only for neuropathic pain and epilepsy for patients who have partial seizures, it has also been prescribed in treatment for substance use disorders. Many studies report the potential risk of abuse of gabapentin by people with substance use disorders. The objective of this paper is to determine if people who have been in treatment for substance use disorders bought gabapentin in a time span that could indicate consumption at a dose that exceeded the maximum approved dose of 3600 mg/day.

Substrate Selectivity Check of the Ergothioneine Transporter.

Drug Metab Dispos 2018 Jun 12;46(6):779-785. Epub 2018 Mar 12.

Department of Pharmacology, University of Cologne, Cologne, Germany

The candidate vitamin ergothioneine (ET) is a unique antioxidant. Expression of the ET transporter (ETT) (gene symbol ) in distinct cells is thought to signal intracellular ET activity, since we have previously shown that the ETT is highly selective for ET. Unfortunately, some continue to hold the ETT as a relevant drug transporter, using the misleading functional name OCTN1, novel organic cation transporter. Read More

Gabapentin reduces haloperidol-induced vacuous chewing movements in mice.

Pharmacol Biochem Behav 2018 03 31;166:21-26. Epub 2018 Jan 31.

Programa de Pós-Graduação em Farmacologia, Universidade Federal de Santa Maria, RS, Brazil. Electronic address:

Tardive dyskinesia (TD) is a common adverse effect observed in patients with long-term use of typical antipsychotic medications. A vacuous chewing movement (VCM) model induced by haloperidol has been used to study these abnormalities in experimental animals. The cause of TD and its treatment remain unknown, but several lines of evidence suggest that dopamine receptor supersensitivity and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) insufficiency play important roles in the development of TD.

Appl Spectrosc 2017 Nov 29;71(11):2519-2531. Epub 2017 Jun 29.

1 Departamento de Química e Farmácia, FCT, Universidade do Algarve, Faro, Portugal.

This work aimed at analyzing the performance of direct spectroscopic methods for the quantification of gabapentin (GABAp), given the lack of previous studies, in comparison with the more reviewed and complex derivatization techniques, discussing their susceptibility to the pharmaceutical formulations. All of the methods analyzed showed high selectivity for this pharmaceutical analyte, with recoveries close to 100%. Absorption spectroscopy without derivatization yielded better sensitivity and lower limits of detection and quantification of gabapentin in aqueous solution (AqSol method) when compared with other solvents, such as acidic solution or ethanol/water mixture.

An Updated Overview on Therapeutic Drug Monitoring of Recent Antiepileptic Drugs.

Drugs R D 2016 Dec;16(4):303-316

Department of Pharmaceutics, College of Clinical Pharmacy, King Faisal University, Al-Ahsa, Saudi Arabia.

Given the distinctive characteristics of both epilepsy and antiepileptic drugs (AEDs), therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) can make a significant contribution to the field of epilepsy. The measurement and interpretation of serum drug concentrations can be of benefit in the treatment of uncontrollable seizures and in cases of clinical toxicity; it can aid in the individualization of therapy and in adjusting for variable or nonlinear pharmacokinetics; and can be useful in special populations such as pregnancy. This review examines the potential for TDM of newer AEDs such as eslicarbazepine acetate, felbamate, gabapentin, lacosamide, lamotrigine, levetiracetam, perampanel, pregabalin, rufinamide, retigabine, stiripentol, tiagabine, topiramate, vigabatrin, and zonisamide.
