dc.description.abstractTricyclic antidepressants, anticonvulsants, and capsaicin reduce the pain of diabetic neuropathy; limited data suggests that lidocaine patches may also be efficacious. Both tricyclic antidepressants and anticonvulsants are superior to placebo in relieving painful diabetic neuropathy. Compared with placebo, patients taking tricyclic antidepressants report reduced pain (number needed to treat [NNT] for at least 50% reduction= 3.5) (strength of recommendation [SOR]: A). Similarly, patients taking anticonvulsants report reduced pain (NNT for at least 50% reduction in pain=2.7) (SOR: A).eng
