OBSERVATION:
8% capsaicin was equivalent to the topical lidocaine patch and "significantly more effective than the oral post-herpetic neuralgia treatments. Tricylic antidepressants (TCAs) were least costly and significantly less costly than duloxetine, pregabalin, topical lidocaine patch, 8% capsaicin patch, but not gabapentin". TCAs (amitripyline, nortriptyline, desipramine) are safe even in patients with ventricular arrhythmias..except in the very ill, imipramine can cause drop in blood pressure. Lyrica is no better than gabapentin.
8% Lithium ointment greatly improved shingles and reduced pain.
