Mechanisms of action: Meds that act on calcium channels = Gabapentin and lyrica; likely no new meds with that same mechanism of action for a while. But, existing meds for neuropathy w/ different moa include Cymbalta & venlafaxine (snris), Amitriptyline and other heterocyclic antidepressants, tizanidine (alpha2 agonist), vimpat (lacosamide) (anticonvulsant), Alpha lipoic acid, and vitamin B12 + b6 + folate supplements. Take care!
