melatonin and neuropathy
Oct 20, 2005

can melatonin help in any of the treatments for any kind of neurapathys plase let me know i have very bad neuropathy in my legs and feet

Response from Dr. Henry

I have not seen any convincing data that melatonin helps neuropathy. Other treatments (switching off offending medications, controlling diabetes, amitryptiline, Neurontin, ? high doses of N-acetyl carnitine) variable help some patients. KH
