have you tried gabapentin or some of the antidepressants like trazodone or cymbalta? I've been trying a variety of these and some seem to help - gabapentin in combination with another one help the most. But I also am implanted with a spinal cord stimulator and that also helps. Best to you!

maybe try lorenzo's oil, rapeseed and olive oil. measurements are on a blog about the movie lorenzo's oil. this is a long shot but i hope you find a way to get a drug that's recommended by the medical community.

I am currently taking Gabapentin. It is so much cheaper than Lyrica!! Although it doesn't take away all the pain, it does help. My doctor says you can take up to 3600mg daily, but you have to slowly work up to it. Good luck!! I still don't know what is causing my peripheral neuropothy!!!

Gabapentin a generic form of neurontin is supposed to be very similar to lyrica. The generic form gabapentin is a lot cheaper. They do say you need to take more of it then you do with lyrica.

i am taking 1600mg a day of gabapentin and 1200mg of pentoxifylli and i still have alot of burning and hurting especially at night but the doctors are still blaming it on smoking which i have cut down to 4 cigarettes a day and plan to continue to quit! is there anyone out there that has better luck with another drug besides gabapentin? It seems to make me feel real drowsy and like i'm high on something
