Analysis of data was done by Chi square which assumed that the Gabapentin is superior to amitripyline as accept alternative hypothesis (Ha) and other reject null hypothesis(H0) assumed both have the same action. The result of Chi square showed that the value of calculated Chi square (39.32) is higher than Table Chi square (6.63) at p < 0.01 so the authors have to accept that Ha means that Gabapentin therapy is more significantly effective than amitripyline(p < 0.01). In addition, the present study showed that the number need to treat (NNT) of Gabapentin =2.
