Painful diabetic neuropathy: Treatment with modern anticonvulsants

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Painful peripheral neuropathy (PN) occurs frequently in patients with longstanding diabetes. Treatment alternatives are limited and responses to treatment vary. Drugs designed primarily for the treatment of epilepsy have been a mainstay of treatment for this debilitating condition, and the development of the newer anti-seizure drugs has broadened the therapeutic options for the treatment of diabetic and other painful neuropathies.
