Neuropathic Pain Medication

See a doctor

Neuropathy is a condition in which you continue to experience chronic pain long after the original cause of your injury (e.g. a broken bone or burn) has cleared. The reason for this is often difficult to find, but neuropathic pain medication can help you manage your symptoms and relieve discomfort.

You can be prescribed medication to deal with symptoms such as:

  • Numbness
  • Prickling
  • Tingling
  • Shooting pain
  • Throbbing pain
  • Oversensitivity, i.e. feeling pain from small actions that shouldn’t be painful

If you’re experiencing prolonged pain after a recent illness or injury, talk to one of our doctors today using your smartphone, tablet or desktop computer.

They’ll listen to your symptoms and write you a private prescription that you can pick up from a pharmacy of your choice.

Often, the medication you’re given will be something that’s normally used for a different purpose. For example:

  • Anticonvulsants - Normally used to treat epilepsy, in this case they can stabilise nerves
  • Antidepressants - Usually used in mental health, they can relax muscles and help manage pain
  • Anti-inflammatories - These can reduce swelling around the affected area
