“…The side effects, such as somnolence and dizziness, are less common compared to gabapentin. The mechanism of action of gabapentinoids involves the modulation of ion flow in the calcium channels, limiting the central susceptibility by reducing the release of transmitters [9]. Another drug that can limit cognitive and sleep disorders is melatonin, which can be used for premedication [10].…”
