Brief Answer:
You can use gabapentin.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome to 'Ask A Doctor' service.
I read your query and here is my advice.

Of course, you can take gabapentin because it is an anticonvulsant that can be used on neuropathic pain.

Also, tricyclic antidepressants can be used such as amitriptyline. Additionally, you can use lidocaine gel during intercourse to reduce discomfort.

Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hello dear and thank you for asking again.
You don't have to worry about interactions between glucophage and gabapentin because there are no interactions between them . You can safely use them together.
Unfortunately in most of the cases vulvodynia can't be cured.
