Too broad a question: It depends on what you are focussing on - the cause of the diabetic foot pain or the symptom itself or both. This is too broad of a question to answer because the first thing that has to be determined is how well controlled is the diabetes. Treating the pain is treating the symptom but the cause of the pain may be related to the damage to the nerves caused by the disease.

It depends: On the etiology of the pain. If your referring to neuropathy, diffent meds work for different people. Sometimes even vitamins can help if its neuropathy like alpha Lipoic acid or Metanx.

Identify the cause: Neuropathy is a condition resulting from abnormal nerve function. Neuropathy can be due to certain vitamin deficiencies, nerve damage due to trauma, alcohol consumption, radiation, side effects of certain medications, or due to certain medical conditions such as diabetes. Treatment varies depending on the cause of the problem. Have it evaluated and appropriately treated.
