A 59 year old man, suffering from metastatic prostate carcinoma, was treated for the pain by amitriptyline. He was also suffering from neuropathic pain, due to the chemotherapy he was prescribed. The amitriptyline was inducing drowsiness, and as the patient was a professor at an university he was not particularly fond of this TCA.
We started treating with palmitoylethanolamide and vitamin B complex, combined in PeaPlex. Within a month the pain decreased, both in his feet as well as in the shoulders and arms, due to the metastases.
After 2 month the pain was decreased for more than 50%, and his general condition was very much improved.
