Thanks for the query.

In lumbar stenosis, there is mechanical compression of the nerves which can cause tingling numbness and pain in the legs. Initially medicinal treatment is advised depending upon patient symptoms.

Nexito acts on the brain and it is commonly used to treat anxiety or depression. I use more often pregabalin medicine. It is used for symptomatic treatment and it doesn't reduce the nerve compression.
In short, I would say it is used to calm down irritable nerves.

Let me know if you have more concerns.
