Many options.: Topical capsaicin may be helpful for some, while others may benefit with oral medication such as Pregabalin (lyrica), Amitriptyline (elavil), duloxetine (cymbalta), Gabapentin (neurontin), Carbamazepine (tegretol), or valproate (depakote) to reduce the painful symptoms in the feet due to neuropathy. Watch you sugar intake, and have your vitamin b levels checked and supplemented as necessary.
