Linda another drug being used for neuropathy is Lyrica and it does work very well. I was on Cymbalta for neuropathy first. They have to adjust the dose to get you where you need to be if its going to help. I stayed on Cymbalta until it stopped working then was switched to Lyrica. I will have to search over on the chronic pain forum, a couple of peeps over there are being rx'd two drugs for neuropathy and I simply cannot remember which drugs it is. But we all react so differently to medication so its all by trial & error. Pain medication really does not help with neuropathy pain, just seems to not have any effect worth talking about
