the medicine for nerve pain or neuropathy is pregabalin plus methylcobalamine combination which is easily available any where.

it comes as brand name PREGABA M or PREGATOR or PREGADOC PLUS any combination would do.

this tablet can be taken at night time daily.

other drug you can use in neuropathy is TRYPTOMER 10 mg at night.it contains amitryptaline.also comes as AMITONE.

hope I have answered the question.
