How it works
Gabapentin relieves the pain in neuralgia by altering the way the body senses pain. Methylcobalamin works by facilitating the enzymes responsible for the production of vital components and energy inside a cell. It also plays a major role in the formation of blood components. Thus, the combination is better effective for the treatment of neuropathic pain in adults.
