Can prescription or OTC drugs that cause vasodilation worsen peripheral neuropathy? I have had to stop taking norvasc, (amlodipine) garlic, and ginkgo biloba due to this.
Yes, possibly: Peripheral neuropathy often comes from damaged nerves sending aberrant impulses--tingling, pins/needles, burning, cold, or numbness.
