Health Care Professional Information – How Neuragen Works

Neuragen is a topical product that works directly at the site of the nerve pain as opposed to oral products. Neuragen is clinically shown to reduce neuropathic (nerve) pains quickly and without the side effects of orally taken medications. This is in part due to the small lipophilic molecules found in Neuragen which rapidly carry the active ingredients through the rough outer layer of the skin to the site of the pain.

Many patients who have failed to respond to other treatments have experienced significant pain relief using Neuragen. Many patients who have used Neuragen have not only reported sleeping better but sleeping throughout the night, being able to walk without pain, remaining active, going back to work, enjoying a social life again, increased energy and less depression – a significantly better quality of life.

Neuragen is a homeopathic pain reliever that is safe to use, with no side effects. Neuragen may be used alone or in combination with other medications. Always discuss all types of pain with your health care professional.

Neuragen is available over the counter in most local pharmacies either in the diabetic section or the analgesic (pain) section.

Chronic pain caused by damage to peripheral nerve fibers is one of the most debilitating forms of pain for the patient and one of the most frustrating for the practitioner; especially chronic pain experienced by diabetics.

One of the most common neuropathic pain conditions is Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy (DPN)).

Studies indicate that:

• Patients with severe pain reported more difficulty being compliant in taking their diabetes medicine. Krien SL, Heisler M, Piette JD, Makki F, Kerr EA. The Effect of Chronic Pain on Diabetes self Management.
Diabetes Care: 2005; 28: 65-70

• Even if the patient’s glucose levels are under control, their pain might not be. Improving blood sugar levels may not impact DPN pain or reverse nerve damage. Sorensen L, Molyneaux L, Yue DK. Insentate verses painful diabetic neuropathy: the effects of height, gender, ethnicity and glycaemic control.
Diabetes Res Clin Pract. 2002; 57: 45-51

Patients are often on multiple medications to treat their pain. This increases incidence of side effects, presents the potential for drug interactions and is also quite costly.

• In a recent survey of painful DPN patients (n-255), 50 took an average of 4 prescriptions and 2 OTC medications for pain alone. Gore M, Brandenburg NA, Hoffman DL, Tai K-S, Stacey B. Burden of illness in painful diabetic peripheral neuropathy-the patient’s perspective.
J Pain 2006,7:892-900

• Besides DPN, Post Herpetic Neuralgia (PHN) continues to be one of the most difficult pain disorders to treat. Pappagallo M, Hadley EJ, Pharmacological management of postherpetic neuralgia.
CNS Drugs. 2003;17(11): 771-780
