... Treatment Group"? I have painful peripheral neuropathy from chemotherapy and have been using Gabapentin and Lyrica for four years. I used Cymbalta but now have urination problems (can't urinate easily) so I discontinued it.
Peripheral Neuropathy - Has anyone tried "Neuropathy Support Formula" sold by the Neuropathy?

I’ve tried Lyrica and Gabapentin for my neuropathy but couldn’t use either due to horrible side effects. Someone recommended I try Neuropathy Support Formula. I was a bit skeptical about purchasing them due to the price but I tried it and it works! After major back surgery I was left with the debilitating neuropathy pain and was desperate to find relief. I highly recommend Neuropathy Support Formula, now called Nerve Renew. Good luck and I wish you relief.
I have PN in my feet due to MGUS. Cymbalta worked great for about a year, but not anymore. I tried the Neuropathy Formula and got no results at all.
I have suffered with peripheral Neuropathy for about 4 years. Paying the price for six months of chemo. I have tried Lyrica and Gabapentin. Both drugs cause me to shake so bad I had to quit. About four months ago someone suggested that I try massage therapy. It has really helped me to walk again and am mostly pain free. Still have some night pain, but if I get up and do some stretching exercises on my legs the pain quickly goes away. This is so much better than drugs and the side effects. The foot and leg massage is also very relaxing. I am now down to once a week massage and glad that I made the choice to try it. I have also heard that acupuncture works well.
Has anyone tried to contact this company to cancel receiving the product, and have you been successful? I've been taking the formula for about 45 days now and feel no different. The PN in my feet has not eased at all. I spoke to my pain management doc and he told me basically that anything over 100 mg of a daily recommended dose is just expelled from the body in your urine. I also have stage 3 kidney disease so all the high doses of the vitamins and root extracts are not good for my kidneys since they have to work harder to expel all these in addition to my normal functions. I tried calling and left a message to cancel, as well as emailed, and have not received any feedback regaring my cancellation request. I hope they cancel before my next ship date or I'll be out another $50.00 for stuff I can't use <sigh>
YES, YES, AND YES. See the other comments so I don't have to repeat myself. In summary: I have been using the Neuropathy Support Formula for three weeks now, I have added my own R-Factor Alpha Lipoic Acid, 300mg in the morning, and I have had great relief of the neuropathy. You may want to take Marshmallow Root extract with it because it caused nausea for me. Felt like I was getting the flu and finally associated it with the supplement. Easy fix and IT WORKS!
I am just starting my eighth bottle. I have PN in my feet and lower legs. I have slowly taken myself off of gabapentin and cut my cymbalta to 30mg since starting the formula. It seems to help with all the tingling and burning but I still have problems with severe shooting pains in my big toes. I usually have these shooting pains every other day. I take lyrica and hydrocodone for these pains. What a mess. Anyway, I would recommend the Neuropathy Support Formula. Good Luck!
I have diabetic peripheral neuropathy. The pain was so bad that I had to cover my feet with Vaseline and thick socks to walk. I tried alpha-lipoic acid, and, after 2 months, the pain went away, leaving only some tingling and numbness. Just to make sure it was the ALA, I stopped taking it. After a week, the pain was back, so I started taking it again. After another 2 months, the pain was finally gone again. I'll never stop taking it!
Although I've never taken NSF, the primary ingredient is ALA, and it is very effective but only after 2-4 months. The other ingredients may give some more immediate relief.
I have had peripheral neuropathy for 5 years, due to pressure on a nerve in lumbar region of my back. A fusion (L2-L5) did not relieve the initial numbness, and I have been on Gabapentin ever since.The pain, numbness, and burning have been getting worse, despite taking 600 mg. 6-7X/day. My neurologist has been trying different vitamins (B6, B12, R-Alpha Lipoic Acid. CoQ10,) individually, with no improvement. Incidentally, the R version of Alpha Lipoic Acid is more readily absorbed. I'm considering taking NSF and am interested in others' experience with this product.
Hi, I ordered it for my husband who is diabetic. They recommend 4 months, so that person who said 5 days is prob spam. He's been on it for app 3 mos and today I noticed his feet were actually warm, not cold and brownish like before. We're hoping he's turning the corner. He has no feeling in his feet, yet they hurt. I sure hope this is the alternative answer we've been looking for. Hope this helps.
I am a 66 yr old who began developing Neuropathy pain a yr ago. My doc has tried several tests to identify the source with no success. My neurologist believe it to be results a a knee replacement or the fact that have developed Parkinsons. Either way I needed help. I tried prescriptions but they bothered my thinking and how I felt and with little success. I have been on tramadol 50 mg and it helps for a short time. I also came across Neuropathy Support Formula and have taken it for 6 months. The pain and burning has worsened during this time. So I'm going off NSF to see if it gets worse quickly or stays the same. I've also used Diabetic Neuropathy foot cream with some success (Magnilife) carries it, just google it. But I now am using (not a joke) a lotion called "Two Old Goats" also on line. I've purchased 4 bottles and was so excited with the results, the burning intensity goes away for 3-4 hrs.
I've given 2 bottles away to family members , my mom and daughter in law. I've used one bottle and it lasted about a month. Cost is 17.95 plus shipping 4.95.
I have used it for four months. Got great results after just one week, but after four months I was amazed. It was like I was normal again. I then went off of it because of unrelated surgeries, (had to go off all pills during that month). I didn't seem to need the pills for another month or so after that, but since my neuropathy problem is on going, recreating the nerve damage (eating the coating off the nerves), so I have recently gone back on the formula as the symtoms were slowly returning.
It isn't baiting as to why they say it takes four months. It really seems to take that long to repair the damaged nerves. Did for me.
Anyway, it is worth the cost to me. :) It gives me back quality of life and I am VERY greatful for that.
But check with your Doc to make sure there isn't anything in it that might not mix well with your meds. What's good for me might not be good for you.
I've used Neuropathy Support Formula for six months along with their Nerve Repair Optimizer. I have moderate PN of unknown cause. I've had it for 20+ years. I'm discontinuing the NSF and NRO for lack of results. There seemed to be a small improvement in the first five days, but nothing more as time went on.
I started with a fully refundable 3 month trial. But with the product came a sheet advising that results might take 4-5 months. Right away I felt baited and switched. Nevertheless, given the potential benefits, I had to try this and give it a full trial.
So after three months and minimal results, I purchased another three months' supply. I saw no improvement at all in the second three months. (And I can get a refund on my second order only.) Your mileage may vary, but that's my experience with Neuropathy Support Formula and Nerve Repair Optimizer.
I have neuropathy. Mine is not diabetic or genetic. I have been taking the formula for almost 5 months now. There are 4 extracts that I have researched. They all have good things. The comment on the feverfew was incorrect. Some report that long term studies haven't been done. Other parts of the world show it being used on a long term basis. I saw where the previous poster got the information and actually developed a conclusion on it as to where the actual information did not state that it shouldn't be taken for more than 4 months. Please search medicinal + feverfew and you should find the actual verbage.
Long story short, when I stopped taking the formula, my pain surged back within days. I am not experiencing side effects. It seems to also help with arthritis.
The thing that needs to be checked is not the B vitamins, but the herbs they put in the formula. I checked on feverfew because I couldn't figure out why it was in the formula. Found that you're not supposed to take it more than 4 months. That stopped me from using it.
I'm wondering if those that say how great it is and it worked right away aren't here just to promote the product. Funny, I keep finding this type of thing when looking for neuropathy relief. Nothing but a drug will give you instant relief.
Never heard of the stuff. If it were me,I would continue the Gabapentin, then purchase a vitamin;ALPHA-LIPORIC-ACID. You may buy it at any drug store, or at WALLEYWORLD. It helped me a lot, you may have to try two pills a day at first, to experiment, but this is the cheapest answer to my pain/nerve problems. RW
