Author information

  • Department of Neurology, University of Rochester, NY 14642, USA. thomas_guttuso@urmc.rochester.edu

Abstract

The author describes six cases in which gabapentin treatment reduced the frequency of hot flashes. In addition, gabapentin treatment enhanced the frequency of hypothermic episodes in a separate patient with known hypothalamic dysfunction. Gabapentin may act directly upon temperature regulatory centers.
