Hello doctors, I have been suffering from Diabetic neuropathy (nerve disorders caused by diabetes) since last 8 months and have constant pain in my left leg. Previously the doctor prescribed Ketriplin (.075% capsaicin) however upon worsening of the pain, now I am using Deep Senzzz (Gabapentin, Ketoprofen, Capsaicin & Methyl Salicylate) Ointment. Along with topical creams I am also using pills such as peragablin, Calcitab, Libotryp, Human Mixtard tab as prescribed by the doctor as the doctor noted loss of calcium in bones. However none of pills have Diclofenac in it and since Dynapar QPS is diclofenac based so I would like to know whether Dynapar QPS will be useful and provide pain relief for patients in Diabetic Neuropathy or Has anyone suffering from Diabetic Neuropathy tried Dynapar QPS. Please share your experience. Your valuable advice will help a lot.
