Anticonvulsant

Neurontin

If you have regular migraines or a chronic nerve condition that causes you pain and discomfort, try Neurontin, a versatile prescription medication designed to combat nerve pain or the onset of seizures by changing the way neurotransmitters respond between the brain and nerve cells. At Nurx™, we want to empower you to live your best life without having to worry about pain controlling your aspirations, which is why we offer Topiramate, which is a generic anticonvulsant that can prevent migraines.

Neurontin has been on the market since 1993 and was first discovered by the pharmaceutical company Parke-Davis in 1975. It is made up of one active ingredient, Gabapentin, that prevents pain and seizures. This active ingredient comes in several different dosages to fit your age and condition. Neurontin also has eight inactive ingredients that help bind, preserve, and dissolve the actual pill itself. An oral solution is also available as a substitute for tablets or capsules.

Topiramate (Topamax)

Topiramate helps treat migraines by preventing them from happening in the first place and reducing the frequency with which you get them. Topiramate, the generic version of the drug Topamax, is what is known as an anticonvulsant or anti-epileptic drug, which is also commonly prescribed for preventing and controlling seizures.

Topamax

Topamax is the name brand of Topiramate, an anticonvulsant and nerve pain medication used to treat and prevent epileptic seizures. It’s also used to prevent migraines and reduce the frequency that you get them. Topamax doesn’t treat migraine symptoms, but it can reduce or stop them from happening. Here at Nurx™, we offer the generic version, Topiramate, which is also the active ingredient. We offer the same dosages of Topiramate that you would find in Topamax.

The way that Topamax works to prevent or reduce the frequency of your migraines are still largely unknown, but doctors believe that it targets overactive nerves in the brain that can lead to migraines. Topiramate is the only migraine prevention medication approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration for teen use.
