Gabapentin was originally developed for the treatment of epilepsy, and is currently widely used to relieve neuropathic pain. It is not intended to take intravenously and that approach would be rather dangerous. Gabapentin's most common side effects in adult patients include dizziness, drowsiness, and peripheral edema.
