Nortriptyline and fluphenazine in the symptomatic treatment of diabetic neuropathy. A double-blind cross-over study.

Abstract

A controlled clinical trial on the efficacy of a nortriptyline-fluphenazine combination was carried out in patients with painful diabetic polyneuropathy. A visual analog scale was used to evaluate the relief of pain or paresthesia. Significant relief of both pain and paresthesia was obtained with this combination. The differences were statistically significant. Side effects were frequent but not usually severe enough to lead to cessation of these medications.
