Acetyl-carnitine and neuropathy
Feb 1, 1998

If I'm taking ddi and d4t, but don't have symptoms of neuropathy yet, would acetyl-carnitine possibly help delay any possible onset, or do you think the talk about it is not worth listening to?

Response from Dr. Gallant

I haven't heard any convincing evidence that there is anything that can prevent drug-related neuropathy.
