Research Study in the Treatment of Women with Pain during Intercourse
The Department of Clinical Pharmacy seeks female volunteers, 18 years of age or older, for a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical research study to determine the effectiveness of Gabapentin in relieving symptoms associated with provoked vestibulodynia (PVD, also known as “vulvar vestibulitis” or “vulvodynia”), a condition with causes pain during intercourse. Gabapentin is approved for the treatment of fibromyalgia, and may be effective in treating pain in other conditions, such as PVD. All participants will receive the study medication half the time and placebo (or inactive treatment) one half the time. You will also receive $50 per visit, or a total of $350 if you complete the entire study, and study-related care at no cost.
The research study involves 7 visits over an 18 week period. You will be asked to keep a daily diary to record your pain.
