One of the hurdles to treating neuropathic pain is that it does not respond to opioid medications. There has been some success seen with the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) including ibuprofen and with some anti-convulsant medication. However, some neuropathic pain conditions are too severe and do not respond to these medications
There have been recent developments to show that ketamine can help with the pain caused by neuropathic conditions. However, there is a stigma that goes along with the use of ketamine, as it is a popular recreational hallucinogenic drug.
While this treatment is still considered controversial by many it may be an effective treatment for conditions that are not responsive to other medications. Talk to your specialist about whether or not ketamine is right for you.
