Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Neuropathy support formula is a blend of multivitamins and neurotonics advised in treatment of neuropathy.
It's seen to show effects within 3-5 weeks however may take as long as 2 months for the same.
The nerve repair optimizer products contain naturally derived enzymes to help in faster recovery and can be taken along if you have no or minimal improvement with the former treatment . However it would be advisable to wait for a couple of weeks to notice any improvement in your symptoms with the neuropathy support formula.
Also, I assume you are taking the formulation as prescribed( 2 capsules before meals morning and night ie 4 capsules daily).
In any case after a period of 6 weeks if you have absolutely no relief it's best to get yourself reevaluated by your doctor for best management .
Hope I have answered your query.
Wishing you good health.
Regards
