Gabapentin (Neurontin) does NOT work for diabetic peripheral neuropathy.

  This comes from an ongoing lawsuit against Pfizer for promoting unapproved uses of Neurontin. Pfizer is now accused of suppressing studies that show Neurontin does NOT relieve diabetes-related nerve pain.

  This is a big surprise. Gabapentin is frequently used "off-label" in these patients...and is supported in guidelines.

  Tell patients and physicians not to overreact.
