Gabitril is an anticonvulsant and an anti-epileptic drug. This is a GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) reuptake inhibitor that is administered in combination with other medications to help adults and children over the age of twelve years prevent partial seizures. Partial seizures affect only a small portion of your brain and can be a precursor to generalized seizures, which affect the whole brain.

Gabitril vs Gabapentin 

These two drugs are both anti-seizure medications involving gamma-aminobutyric acid. However, these two differ in the way they work. Gabitril medication increases the brain’s GABA levels while Gabapentin is similar to GABA in its chemical composition and bars the release of other chemicals that might induce seizures.
