Is there a treatment or cure for neuropathy that uses vitamins or supplements?

Is there a treatment or cure for neuropathy that uses vitamins or supplements?

Maybe: In cases of neuropathy related to vitamin deficiency, supplementaiton can reverse or slow neuropathy. Vitamin B12 and folate (folic acid) are the most common, and a once-daily super b complex vitamin (or B12 shot) is often recommended. It does not reverse all neuropathy, and should not be taken in excess since b6 in high doses can be toxic to nerve as well. ...Read more

Will 422ng/l vitamin B12 possibly allow neuropathy? Also can I increase this wothout supplements?

Possibly, probably: Some experts advise treating anyone with symptoms of B12 deficiency who has a level below 450, so you qualify. Deficiency occurs from either not getting enough in diet or poor absorption. If you eat a lot of animal foods (clams and fish are esp. Good sources) and still have this level try supplementing with 1000 mcg/day of methylcobalamin (ideally sublingual form). See http://bit.Ly/1607tg3. ...Read more

Can orthomolecular psychiatry, and the use of vitamin supplements treatment and treat schizophrenia?

No cure: Right now there is no cure for schizophrenia. I am not aware of any vitamins or supplements that have been helpful in controlling psychotic symptoms. From experience, I have had some patients try that route and have been unsuccessful. Perhaps one day researchers will find a cure. Until then, antipsychotic medications are the main method of treatment. ...Read more

Will a vitamin d supplement be an effective treatment for lamictal induced deficiency?

Will a vitamin d supplement be an effective treatment for lamictal induced deficiency?

Yes: Lamictal has a whole slew of potential side effects, but wasn't aware that vitamin d deficiency was one of them.
