Gralise Medication Information
Available by prescription only, GraliseTM (extended-release gabapentin) is a drug licensed for the treatment of postherpetic neuralgia (nerve pain that occurs after a case of shingles). This medication is not appropriate for everyone, however, so talk to your healthcare provider before starting treatment with Gralise. For instance, tell your healthcare provider if you have depression, cancer, or any allergies.
While most people do not have any problems while taking this medicine, side effects are possible and may include drowsiness, dizziness, and headaches. If reactions occur, they tend to be minor and easily treated.
Gralise comes in tablet form and is typically taken once daily with the evening meal. Do not suddenly stop taking this drug, as it can increase your risk for seizures.
