Active Ingredient: Gabapentin
The oscillations reach the threshold amplitude, causing ectopic impulses to be generated, therefore leading to sustained peripheral sensitization. There is also the expression of voltage-gated calcium channels present in neuropathic pain, particularly channel subtype Cav 3.
The calcium entry through theses voltage-gated calcium channels stimulates the release of substance P and glutamate, resulting in modulation of pain at the dorsal horn.
At the cellular and tissue levels in neuropathic pain, there is redistribution of the Nav 1. With neuropathic pain, presence of inflammatory mediators is present peripherally and centrally in the nervous system.
The pain involves ongoing sensitization caused by either constant afferent stimulation from afferent nerves or from functional changes in the DRG present in sympathetic sprouting.
There is also a significant decrease in substance P and CGRP and increases in galanin and neuropeptide Y, as per research analysis on afferent neurons and the spinal cord.
Neuropathic pain can be divided into four broad categories: complex neuropathic disorders such as complex regional pain syndrome, peripheral focal and multifocal nerve lesions inflammatory, traumatic, or ischemic, peripheral generalized polyneuropathies metabolic, hereditary, inflammatory, or toxic, and CNS lesions e.
Clinical presentation of neuropathy involves at least one of the following three elements. The first is constant pain, which is present in the vast majority of cases, as it is spontaneous and usually described as a burning or tingling sensation, and less commonly as a cold sensation or aching.
The second element is intermittent pain. It is statistically more common in patients with pain secondary to peripheral nervous system or spinal cord injury. Finally, evoked pain, which is expressed as allodynia or hyperpathia, is more frequent after lesions in the brain due to damage to a part of the somatic nervous system.
Literature shows that there is a high prevalence rate of chronic pain, particularly neuropathic pain, because unfortunately there is an absence of effective treatments.
While for nociceptive pain opioids and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs provide analgesia, the current medications appear to have a more minimal effect for treatment of neuropathic pain. One particular medication for neuropathic pain is venlafaxine.
In 1997, the extended release XR version of the medication was approved by the FDA and is dosed once per day as opposed to the twice-a-day dosing of immediate release.
