A 63-year-old male asked:

Do medications (eg: lyrica, (pregabalin) prednisone, methotrexate, azathioprine) have any effect on a skin test for small fiber neuropathy?

See below: The Prednisone and azathioprine may more so than the Methotrexate if the small fiber neuropathy is autoimmune in orgin. The Lyrica (pregabalin) may not have much effect.

Neuropathy test: None of these should affect the test.
