Hi,
Thanks for being on healthcaremagic.com.
I am Dr. Ajay Panwar,a neurologist, here to answer your query.

In case, Lyrica with its maximum dose is not easing off the symptoms, add-on medicines like Duloxetine can be taken. In addition, topical gels like Gabapentin gel and Capsaicin can be used.

Hope that helps.If you have any further questions,I shall be glad to answer them.
