The FDA just released the analysis of 199 studies done on a total of 44,000 patients who were taking anti-epileptic drugs. The results showed there was twice the risk of suicidal behavior in using anti-epileptic drugs as compared with patients taking a placebo.
Two of the anti-epileptic drugs in these studies were Gabapentin (marketed as Neurontin) and Pregabalin (marketed as Lyrica). Both of these drugs are advertised for neuropathy and are made by the drug company Pfizer.
In 2004 Pfizer was fined by the FDA and paid over $430 million for promoting Neurontin to doctors as a medication for neuropathy, a use for which it was never approved!
So here we have a drug company making two drugs that are prescribed by doctors for neuropathy, one of which was never approved by the FDA for that use, and both are associated with increased risk of suicidal behavior.
(If you know of friends or relatives taking Neurontin or Lyrica, feel free to forward this article to them. You just might save a life!)
Drugs can never heal the body as they are an alien substance in the body. They cannot address the root of the problem, which for most people who have neuropathy, are very specific nutritional deficiencies.
