02 Jun The Most Common Medication 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),
amitriptyline, doxepin (Silenor, Zonalon) and nortriptyline (Pamelor) (Cymbalta) and venlafaxine (Effexor XR)
Unfortunately these medications do not rehabilitate the damaged blood vessels or damaged peripheral nerves that are causing the neuropathy symptoms (Nerve Cell Death).
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.
What is Ischemia? Why Is It A Major Cause Of Peripheral Neuropathy?
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.
Diabetic patients are at a very high risk because these small capillaries of people with diabetes can become obstructed when a large amount of glucose fills the bloodstream. This glucose obstruction prevents the nerve tissues from receiving the nutrients and oxygen needed for health functioning nerves.
Peripheral neuropathy is a serious diabetes complication and is estimated to affect up to 70% of people with diabetes. The feet are the most common area of the body where the nerves are damaged as a result of high blood sugar resulting in the need for peripheral neuropathy treatment.
