Brief Answer:
No information available on herbal products

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thank you for your query.

Gabapentin is a drug that is known to interact with many medicines (517 according to one source), so it would not be a XXXXXXX if it interacts with herbal products as well.

We do not have any information about the interactions with herbal products as these are federally regulated and are not considered medicines.

It is very unwise to combine any herbal product with Gabapentin because we do not know what will happen.

I hope this answers your query, please write back if you have any doubts.

Wishing you good health.

Kind regards
