Other than Neurontin (gabapentin) what are acceptable pain meds to treat severely painful diabetes neuropathy?
Many. There are two medications that are fda-approved for this condition. They are cymbalta, and lyrica (pregabalin). Other meds are often used as well, including tricyclic antidepressants such as nortriptyline and trazodone, and anti-seizure meds such as topiramate, Gabapentin (neurontin), and carbamazepine. Capsaicin (chemical that makes jalapenos hot) creams can also be helpful and don't need a prescription.
