I continue to have about 8 major migraines each month, but since I started gabapentin (now 2400mg per day) I have not had an aura or pain between successfully treated headaches (Migranal) I had frequent aura with or without headache until I started this drug and scalp pain between headaches. Can gabapentin stop aura? Thanks. Jocelyn.
If you have an aura, you have a Migraine, regardless of whether it includes a headache or not. It would appear that gabapentin is helping reduce the severity of your Migraines, but isn't actually preventing them. In situation such as this one, your doctor may want to add a second medication to the mix or discontinue the gabapentin and try something different.
In either case, you need to consult your physician about this.
Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert
