I have a yellow capsule, It has a G on the top and the number 5027 on the bottom. What kind of pill is this?

Most likely that is Gapapentin. It is used for seizures and, less commonly for chronic pain.

Feel free to ask a follow-up question.

How does it help with cronic pain? Does it work like vicodin or other pain killers?

No. It is not a narcotic so it does not work like vicodin. Honestly no one knows for sure why it is effective for chronic pain in some patients. It was developed for epilepsy and some MD's just noticed that it works for chronic pain.

And a BONUS is always appreciated.
