There is a clinical impression that gabapentin (an antiepileptic drug) is a suitable drug which attenuates the intraocular pressure (IOP) elevation associated with tracheal intubation in humans. This study performed to determine the effects of oral gabapentin on IOP following tracheal intubation in clinically normal dogs.

Gabapentin prevents an increase in the IOP associated with trachealintubation in dogs anesthetized with propofol.
