Combination Therapy to Ease Neuropathic Pain

An innovative combination of analgesics may hold the key to unlocking neuropathic pain. In a study of over 300 patients, the benefits of combining the strong opioid oxycodone with gabapentin produced a significant 33% improvement on top of the best pain relief currently achievable using the maximum tolerated dose of gabapentin alone for diabetic neuropathy. The combination produced no additional side effects. Hanna M, O'Brien C, Wilson, M. Neuropathic pain; optimising patient outcome with combination therapy.
