Anticonvulsants (aka antiepileptic drugs or as 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 neuropathic pain. 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).
