Gabitril, also known as tiagabine, is an anticonvulsant medication manufactured by Cephalon.
Gabitril is primarily used to treat epilepsy as a supplementary therapy, and it works by blocking the GABA transporter 1 (GAT-1), which in turn increases the level of γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA), the major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system.
Gabitril was discovered in 1988 by a team of medicinal chemists and pharmacologists at Novo Nordisk in Denmark under the general direction of Claus Bræstrup.
