New Treatment For Neuropathy Pain In SwedenPosted on Mar 02, 2011
- Capsaicin has been available in various forms for many years. The most common form utilized in the US is Zostrix cream, but it also can be prescribed as a patch Qutenza to be used for 60min for severe pain in the US. It is not a new treatment, but was recently approved by the government to be reimbursed in Sweden.
- Capsaicin is a valuable adjunct treatment designed from red peppers and is thought to over stimulate the nerves to produce pain relief. This is not always effective, but can be considered especially in individuals where other pain treatments are not working.
