Gabapentin’s connection to podiatry is that it can be used to treat chronic regional pain syndrome and restless leg syndrome which is common among patients seen in podiatry clinical practice. It is mainly used to treat epilepsy, but its use in conditions such as restless leg syndrome and other has increased over time due to clinical experience in its use.
