27 Aug Best Medication Prescribed For Peripheral Neuropathy?
Currently, Conventional medicine does not have a cure for people who suffer from peripheral neuropathy.
Patients are prescribed powerful medications (painkillers, antidepressants, antiseizure) that do not treat the cause of the damaged peripheral nerves causing the pain, numbness, discoloration, cramping, restless legs, and balance issues.
Unfortunately these medications do not rehabilitate the damaged blood vessels or damaged peripheral nerves that are causing the neuropathy symptoms (Nerve Cell Death).
What Are Peripheral Neuropathy Symptoms?
- The most common symptoms of peripheral neuropathy can include:
- Burning pain radiating in hands or feet
- Pins and needles in the extremities
- Numbness and tingling
- Weakness in hands, arms,legs and or feet
- A knotted feeling in the soles and palms
- Pain from the lightest touches
- Difficulty walking
- Pain from the pressure of walking
- Balance problems
- Inability to grasp with the hands
- Cramping of the feet
- Fingers twisting and locking
- Pain when twisting the wrists
- Hands and feet feeling tired or heavy
- Night pain and sleep difficulty
- Restless legs and feet
- Pain that seems to come even from the sheets or covers on your feet at night
What medications are prescribed for peripheral neuropathy?
Painkillers and anti-inflammatory
- Over-the-counter pain medications nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
- Prescription medications containing opioids :
- tramadol (Conzip, Ultram) oxycodone (Oxycontin, Roxicodone)
- gabapentin (Gralise, Neurontin, Horizant) and pregabalin (Lyrica), Bes
- amitriptyline, doxepin (Silenor, Zonalon) and nortriptyline (Pamelor) (Cymbalta) and venlafaxine (Effexor XR)
Health nerves receive oxygenated blood and nutrition through microscopic capillaries. Damage and/or obstruction to these small blood vessels as a result of high blood sugar, toxins, mechanical entrapment restricts the transfer of oxygen and nutrition to the nerve cells causing nerve cell death.
So why are these drugs prescribed if they don’t address the root cause of peripheral neuropathy ???
Peripheral Neuropathy is progressive condition and we just can’t cover up or mask the problem with medications…… How can this condition be more effectively treated? Is there a better way?
