Understanding the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic profiles of medications is important when making these adjustments. Nevertheless, while dosing gabapentinoids, we must also consider reports by the patient that include side effect profile and tolerability as measured against efficacy, irrespective of the theoretical calculations.A comparative study as preemptive medications.
Sedation scores were significantly higher in M group compared to both G and control groups up to 20 hours postoperatively Figure 1. Dizziness, drowsiness, somnolence as well as headache were rather common side effects of melatonin.
Melatonin 6 mg, orally produced similar effects.
However, gabapentin showed significantly lower analgesic requirements and pain score while melatonin had significantly higher sedative effect.
In this study, gabapentin was used preoperatively as previous animal experiments showed that pretreatment with gabapentin was more effective and longer lasting than post-treatment.
