Gabapentin is an FDA approved analgesic and anticonvulsant drug. This medication is indicated in the treatment of peripheral and central neuropathic pain. Gabapentin is most effective in postherpetic neuralgia. Gabapentin has also been prescribed in the treatment of diabetic neuropathy and restless leg syndrome.
The ACTIVE-PAC with Gabapentin also includes LenzaGel, an over the counter topical analgesic that contains Lidocaine HCL 4.00% and Menthol 1.00% for temporary relief of minor scrapes, cuts, abrasions and irritations. Lenza is delivered through the skin as a gel or a patch in a blend of natural and pharmaceutical ingredients.
Lidocaine temporarily numbs the nerve endings. It relieves pain, itching and burning sensations. Lidocaine is more effective when combined with Menthol, which has a cooling and soothing sensation. Menthol is derived from natural volatile oils such as peppermint.
