No.: I don't feel that it is. But what kind of nerve pain are you experiencing?

Sometimes: MSContin is far better for most types of chronic pain than any of its shorter-acting relatives.Nerve modulators like Lyrica (pregabalin) & Neurontin can also be helpful.All work on the theory that pain is primarily in the brain.In my practice, pain almost always has an actual mechanical or inflamm. cause which is treatable w/ osteopathic manip., neuroprolo, Vit D/glucose creams, etc.This is 'cure' v 'control'.
