Introduction: Mastectomy is associated with moderate to severe pain. Researchers are recently exploring new modalities and drugs to avoid numerous side effects associated with prescribed narcotics. For treatment, gabapentin is a widely used medication, but there is no comprehensive report on the post-mastectomy effects of this medication. Thus, this study aims to evaluate the effects of gabapentin on managing acute pain after surgery.

Results: In the initial search, 288 articles were found. Twenty-one articles were ultimately selected by repeated trading off, including reviewing texts and abstracts, outcomes, results, and the general conclusion, and included in this meta-analysis; The results of most studies have shown that gabaanthin can lead to Acute and Chronic Pain Decrease Post-Mastectomy.
