Does anyone know of an herbal alternative to Lyrica?

    Once again, I have to give up a medication because my husband's BCBS insurance won't cover it until I pay the entire deductible, and Medicare says they are my secondary insurance. And I refuse to pay $117 for a medication that isn't life threatening if I go without. I was on the lowest dose and used it only when the burning became so bad.

    I have heard that inisotol worked to combat neuropathy. Does anyone know or has anyone had any experience with that? I'm open to suggestions!

    B12 deficiency can cause neuropathy. Do you take plenty of B12? Sublingual or injections are the best, and either methylcobalamin or hydroxocobalamin are the best forms. I take 5,000 mcg. of methylcobalamin sublingually a day.

    Google this and you'll find a lot of info.
