Anticonvulsants or antiepileptic drugs or antiseizure drugs are a group of medications used in the treatment of epileptic seizures. Many of these medications are increasingly being used for other purposes, including the treatment of nerve pain.

ME/CFS[edit | edit source]

Anticonvulsants commonly used for pain in ME/CFS include GABA analogs such as gabapentin (trade name Neurontin) and pregabalin (trade name Lyrica), and GABA reuptake inhibitors such as tiagabine (trade name Gabitril).
