In brief: Narcotics/Neurologic

For several reasons some people have severe chronic pain who need narcotic pain meds and nerve stabilizing or neurologic meds like Neurontin and lyrica (pregabalin).
For chronic pain issues your primary care physician will advise you and is a good practice if seen by a pain management specialist. Several types of meds taken orally including long acting, or patches transdermally as out patient.
