In brief: Carpal tunnel

No medication is used to treat carpal tunnel.
It's a mechanical problem. Wrist splints is the initial treatment option. You can try non-steroidal antiinflammatory medications such as naproxen/ibuprofen but the effect of those is minimal if that. Steroid injections can be tried but they are falling out of favor. Carpal tunnel release appears long term cure.
