Customer Question

My wife has strong neuropathic pain in her feet since starting on Axitinib, and Gabapentin gives no relief. Are there any other options? Pregabalin seems controversial.

Hi. Pregabalin is a reasonable medication but there are others like cymbalta, amitryptiline, and tramadol. along with acupuncture. She should discuss these options with her doctor Let me know if you need more information please
