I use whatever works on my pain. Sometimes it is pain pills and other times it is remedies

Thanks to Heidi for the Naproxen info. Ironically, 1 of the listed side effects of Gabapentin & Lyrica is worsening peripheral neuropathy (after a length of time). LOL. For pain a giant spoon of tumeric powder in warm milk or almond milk w/local honey = claseic remedy. Yum. Bless us all.

Both-otc, prescription.

Believe it or not, the Naproxen does a better job for easing my permanent nerve damage than the prescription Gabapentin does.
