Know How Meds for Diabetic Neuropathy Stack Up

Up to 50% of patients with diabetes develop nerve pain within 10 years...and many will try meds to help manage symptoms.

Tricyclic antidepressants (amitriptyline, nortriptyline, etc) can be used...and usually cost less than other options.

Stay alert for patients age 65 or over getting a tricyclic. These meds are on the Beers Criteria of potentially risky meds in older patients...due to concern about anticholinergic side effects (confusion, dry mouth, etc), sedation, or falls.
