I have peripheral neuropathy in my feet caused by Ambien, I believe. I am not diabetic nor an alcoholic. I take gabapentin which seems to be my only relief. I tried Cymbalta, but it made me depressed. I had tarsal tunnel surgery to see if that would help and it did not. I am looking into acupuncture to see if there is any benefit. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
I tried it with a highly regarded acupuncturist which proved unfortunately to have 0 effect. I have had success in the past with acupuncture for another condition so I did not invest too much time or money in this treatment. If there was to be any success I would think it would be temporary at best. Just my 2cents. I am surprised to think that Ambien could cause neuropathy, I had no previous injury or diabetes and have been told that often the cause of neuropathy is unknown. Gabapentin plus ALA works well for me for now. Good luck.
