Re: Late shingles treatment options?
Try Neurontin or Lyrica. Both work for nerve pain that your dad is experiencing. I too have had them for about 6 weeks and still have the nerve pain. Unfortunately this can be permanent. This does not mean it will be, but certainly possible. Both meds work. Lyrica was developed specifically for shingles, although it helps ALL neuropathy for some people. Neurton is cheaper, but with insurance he could try either or both to see which works better.
