Another NonOpiate pain reliever is tapentadol. Here's the Wiki link:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tapentadol

It's similar to tramadol in that it's dual action, both an analgesic and a norephinephrine reuptake inhibitor. It appears to be stronger than tramadol though.

I just researched it because my neurologist suggested I take it. (But I'm not going to.)

Default Relief from Topomax

I was very interested to come across this, since I already take Topomax for migraines. Is there any details as to it's effectiveness in helping with ulnar neuropathy?

Here is a new study comparing Lyrica, Cymbalta, and amitriptyline.

http://general-medicine.jwatch.org/c...?q=featured_jw

This is one link to the abstract with slightly different wording:

http://care.diabetesjournals.org/content/35/12/2451

also on PubMed:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2...?dopt=Abstract

3 reader remarks here:
http://general-medicine.jwatch.org/c.../1220/1#269411
including one suggesting methylcobalamin B12.

Default Hello evry1

I have GBS/CIDP since 4-2011/ then CIDP 8-2011 and have tried lots for the pain of Peripheral Neuropathy: Cymbalta, lyrica, gabapentin, neurotin and all have little effect. I get IVIG @ 110mg every 6 wks, And am on cellcept @ 1000mg daily. My question is has anyone had any pain relief from METANX. Greg

Default Valium

I have 5mg valium nightly. Could that be making my NP worse? I am thinking of asking my GP for some anti depressants but not sure which ones as I also am on coumdin

SSRIs affect bleeding times, and are not recommended for
patients on blood thinners.

And yes, Benzodiazepines may make neuropathy worse.
What do you take the Valium for?

Default Valium

I suffer with depression and Valium has been helping to keep my demons away. I have read on the internet that anti depressants can also be a treatment for neuropathy. I commenced prisiq 3 days ago and already my feelings of shaking has subsided. I intend to wean myself off the valium but that has to be done slowly I believe.

Confused Neuropathy from Chemotherapy

Does anyone have any experience with neuropathy from chemotherapy? I want to relieve my friend's pain so bad. She is suffering from neuropathy on her thigh/hip area. I don't know where to start. Her oncologist only seems to treat her cancer (Stage 4 Cervical Cancer that was treated and rid her of the cancer for a short time). She has recurrent cervical cancer right now. She is already on roxicet and oxycontin and that does not help. She said she did get some relief with Xanax. She also was given some marijuana that helped a lot. She is not a usual pot smoker - but she was desperate! Thank you for taking the time to read this. Any help would be appreciated.
