Hi, it appears that you have to use the drugs that can work with out side effects, because it is a prolonged preatment.
I to my patient with such symptoms prescribe neurotropic injections for 10 consecutive days, and then to continue one for every week, or 10 days. nonnarcotic anti inflamatories like acetaminofen, and paracetamol, for pain relief. Thank you.
