Hi, thanks for asking in Healthcare Magic.
( pain due to nerve damage
) is difficult to treat than Nociceptive (pain due to injuries or burns).
Neurotin is Gabapentin
. It is used to control siezures. It is also found to be effective in neuropathic pain. Along with its analgesic
(pain relieving) action, it can cause causes somnolence (feeling very sleepy). It is started as once a day dose and depending upon the need may be gradually increased to three times a day to have sustained action through out the day.
, another drug of the same group,is absorbed faster and may have an earlier onset of action.
If the pain is very severe even after thrice daily dose of Gabapentin or after substitution to Pregabalin, then Fentanyl patches or Lignocaine patches can help. Your treating Dr will know about these drugs.
I hope this is useful to you.
