Peripheral Neuropathy is a common complication of diabetes. It can also have other causes, such as chemotherapy. Until recently, the only treatment for neuropathy was medication. Common medications for neuropathy, or neuropathic pain, include pain relievers such as NSAIDs (ibuprofen or Aleve) and opiates/narcotics (Percoset or Vicodin). Some of the more common other categories are Anticonvulsants (Gabapentin [Neurontin], Lyrica), SSRIs (Cymbalta), and Tricyclic Antidepressants, or TCAs (Amitriptiline). They seem to be only marginally successful, and can have some side effects.
