Patients who become the most proactive in their personalized neuropathy treatment programs always do the best.
Shotgun therapy is a term applied in medicine when multiple therapies that are sometimes not exactly complimentary are presented to patients. Don’t get me wrong; sometimes in health crises this can be lifesaving!
But too often, it is we as patients who are guilty of this.
A big example is the widespread usage of over the counter cold and pain medications. This has long been a concern of pharmacists and healthcare professionals alike.
Due to a wide degree of variability in patient responses, there are many OTC drug and dietary supplement combinations out there that are probably not beneficial.
Too often herbal based dietary supplements, yes even sometimes those prescribed for neuropathy patients fall into this category. Far too many of these “neuropathy” treatment formulas have multiple ingredients that can interact in unknown ways.
And unbeknownst to you as a patient, this approach may actually be more harmful and not helpful.
As I’m sure you are aware, peripheral neuropathy can be a very frustrating condition to treat.
But one of the most frustrating things for both doctors and patients alike is where no clear neuropathy treatment plan is identified.
Every therapy, every medication you take must be part of an overall neuropathy treatment strategy. Even if that strategy is a trial to see what works best for you!
This is why those patients who become the most proactive in their personalized neuropathy treatment programs always do the best.
So as frustrating as it may be at times, I encourage you to learn as much about your underlying condition and neuropathy treatment options as possible.
Even if it’s not 100% clear on what the underlying cause of your peripheral neuropathy is, the good news is proven strategies now exist for effectively treating many forms of peripheral neuropathy.
