I’ve weaned off of all medications recently to determine whether I’ve improved slightly or if the meds are just working.
Well, I can honestly say my meds weren’t doing a whole lot anymore (lyrica and nortryptiline) so I quit them.
Since I recently read a study of patients with diabetic neuropathy getting relief from nerve pain from 600mg’s daily of ALA, I’m giving it a shot. $30 for 3 months worth on amazon, what have I got to lose?
Apparently it takes 3 weeks for full effect. Here’s a study https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20421656
I can honestly say that for the past day I’ve had far less stabbing, pins and needles nerve sensations. Will it last or is it just a total coincidence?
So far, it might be helping me, so if you suffer from neuropathic pain, you might benefit.
