Neuropathic pain is difficult to treat and may not be fully reversible. However, partial to marked improvement is often possible with proper treatment. Neuropathic pain does not respond completely to traditional painkillers such as paracetamol, anti-inflammatory agents, codeine and morphine. On the other hand, anticonvulsant and antidepressant medication have been demonstrated to be effective in treating this form of pain. In cases where pain is still not controlled with medication, a pain specialist may use nerve blocks or other invasive treatment to manage your pain.
