The risks and benefits of neuropathy pain pharmacological care are considered and a particular drug is selected. Coping strategies are looked at and several non-pharmacological options, which can include referral to a specialist for psychological therapies, or for surgical and often to pain clinics for interventions, are a few of those options.

When a traditional doctor is selecting a specific medication for a neuropathy pain and/or type 2 diabetes patient, several things are considered, like, safety aspects, drug contra-indications, the patient’s preferences and their lifestyle factors, whether the patient has a history of mental health issues which can include anxiety and depression and any existing medication history. All medications and dosage instructions are given in writing and supplementing pain medication with over the counter drugs or alcohol is a sign, what you are doing is not working. Sometimes traditional doctors will overlap old medications with new ones, in an attempt to get pain under control. See Dr. Miller if your situation is this painful.
