I was in the hospital and they gave me an injection for pain. It started with the letter g.
Any ideas?

Could it be gabapentin? Gabapentin is frequently prescribed for nerve pain, although I'm not exactly certain whether it's currently available in an intravenous dosage form. I did happen to find a clinical study on FDA.gov discussing gabapentin being taken via IV administration at the bottom of page 2 in the following link: accessdata.fda.gov/drugsatfda_docs/label/2009/020235s041.pdf

Hopefully this will at least help narrow potential suspects as to what medication you're searching for. I'll be sure to post back if I can think of any other prospects that start with a 'g'. Gabapentin just happens to be one of the more common brand names on the market.

Thanks, David. It's not, I would have remembered gabapentin. It was a name I was not familiar with. I asked the nurse to write it down, but she didn't.

Thanks anyway. I appreciate your response.
