In brief: Treating hereditary neuropathy

Many age old treatments exist, but don't' have the pizzazz of more pharmaceutical treatments popular today.
Efa's, such as in coconut, flax, hemp, etc oils all provide nutrition to nerves. B-complex vitamins have been proven over many years, as well as high dose Alpha lipoic acid.

In brief: Need the cause

Key is determining the cause and treating the underlying problem. The most commonly used medications are typically anti-convulsants such as Lyrica (pregabalin) and neurontin, or anti-depressants such as Cymbalta and elavil.

In brief: DEPENDS ON CAUSE

Since peripheral neuropathies vary, different treatments are used.
The most common neuropathy diabetes, may respond to metanx, lyrica, (pregabalin) cymbalta. Chr. Demyelinating immune neuropathy or multifocal motor do very well with infusions of ivig. Hereditary neuropathies, such as amyloid could be treated with Lyrica (pregabalin) or gabapentin. B-12 neuropathies benefit from b-12 injections. Your doctor can help.
