Hi, I'm Roy1

I had severe Neuropathy and Lyrica Tore up my stomach. I took 3600 Mg of Neurotin which was helpful but still had problems. I found a product on line, from Advanced Bionutritionals, called Advanced Nerve Formula. It is primarily B vitamins. My Dr approved this and I started taking them. They suggest 1 daily. I takec1 in the AM and 1 in the evening. This gives me more relief than anything I have ever been gives. I Pay just over $100 for 3 bottles (180 tablets) I am so thankful I found these!

I have been trying Aspercream on my feet at night. It is giving me some relief.

Hi, I'm Deborah J R.

I wish I had the energy and patience to try home grown, proven, remedies for neuropathy, but I don’t. Gabapentin 600mg at night takes care of my needs. I can put up with the numbness, cold feeling in my feet during the day. Home remedies worth a try.

While I don’t think anything completely takes the pain away if you have bad neuropathy, the thing that helped me get to sleep at night when the pain was bad is Topricin. Everyone is different and I found that vitamin B6 was not helpful for me but others have found it works.I also found that heat increases my pain so I avoid slippers, socks or shoes. Right now all I can tolerate is a pair of sketcher flip flops.

Hi, I'm JustLynn

After 12 weeks of chemo following my lumpectomy for breast cancer, I developed neuropathy in my feet. A nurse suggested I take 200 mg of Vitamin B6. It helped, but I was still experiencing tingling in my feet. After researching on the net, I found Topricin. When I used it, the tingling subsided fairly quickly. I hope it can provide relief for others dealing with neuropathy!

Hi, I'm Betti

It is my understanding neuropathy is tingling basically in the toes and fingers. Have you asked your doctor about it?

Hi, I'm DEBRA J W.

I found an ointment made of frankincense and myrrh called NEUROPATHY that is applied to the bottom of your feet and/or on any hurting joint that takes the pain away within minutes. When applied to the bottom of your feet, the effect travels up into your body within 15 minutes. I purchased it on Amazon.
