Gabapentin mechanism of action

1 post in this topic

I was under he impression of gabapentin (as with pregabalin) had its action through alpha-2-delta subunits of the voltage gated calcium channels (and were NOT involved in acting on the GABA receptor but received the name through it being an analogue of gamma amino-butyric acid).

 

I have seen this written, seemingly in error in a course material.
