What is the best therapy for phantom limb pain? Evidence-Based Answer: Morphine and gabapentin are effective for phantom limb pain, while amitriptyline and memantine afford no benefit (SOR: A, systematic review). Farabloc® limb cover does not significantly decrease phantom limb pain (SOR: B, RCT). Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) and home-based mirror therapy may be helpful (SOR: C, cohort studies).
