Neuropathic Pain Medication

Caused by your nervous system becoming damaged or simply not working correctly, neuropathic pain can be experienced in varying levels and from a variety of locations within the nervous system. The spinal cord, brain and peripheral nerves can all be sources of neuropathic pain. 

The pain occurs when damaged nerve fibres send incorrect signals to the pain centres. It can be exceedingly difficult to discover the source of the neuropathic pain and unfortunately, there are hundreds of diseases and conditions which cause similar pain.

At EU Meds, our collection of treatments can help you to relieve the pain and carry on with life as normally as possible.

More Information

Neuropathic pain is a type of chronic pain caused by damage or dysfunction of the nervous system. It can result from conditions such as diabetes, nerve compression, infections, or trauma. Neuropathic pain is often described as shooting, burning, tingling, or stabbing sensations, and it can be challenging to manage. Unlike nociceptive pain, which is caused by tissue damage, neuropathic pain originates from abnormalities in the nervous system itself.

Neuropathic pain is typically chronic and may be difficult to cure completely. However, it can often be managed effectively with appropriate treatments aimed at reducing symptoms and improving quality of life. While complete relief may not always be possible, many individuals find significant relief from neuropathic pain through a combination of treatments tailored to their specific needs.

There are some natural approaches that may help manage neuropathic pain symptoms and improve overall well-being. These include physical therapies such as acupuncture, yoga, or tai chi, which can help promote relaxation, improve circulation, and reduce stress. Certain supplements or herbal remedies, such as alpha-lipoic acid or capsaicin, may also have beneficial effects on neuropathic pain. It is important to note that you should always consult with your doctor to ensure that natural treatments are safe and suitable for your condition.

Neuropathic pain treatment aims to alleviate symptoms and improve function by targeting the underlying mechanisms of nerve dysfunction. Treatment options may include medications such as antidepressants, anticonvulsants, or topical agents that help modulate nerve activity and reduce pain signals. Other interventions such as nerve blocks, spinal cord stimulation, or physical therapy may also be considered depending on individual needs.

Neuropathic pain treatments come in various forms, including oral medications, topical creams or patches, injections, and interventional procedures. Oral medications such as antidepressants or anticonvulsants are commonly prescribed to help manage neuropathic pain symptoms. Topical agents can provide localised relief. In more severe cases, nerve blocks or spinal cord stimulation may be recommended.

Yes, most neuropathic pain medications require a prescription from a healthcare provider. You should always consult with your doctor or healthcare provider for advice on whether a medication is suitable for you. Please note that at EU Meds, all requests for the supply of prescription medications are subject to an online clinical consultation, and the decision to prescribe will be made by a doctor.
