Neuropharmacology & Neurotherapeutics
Numerous medications have well-established neuropathy links, and many others have only occasional temporal associations. Although uncommon, medication-induced neuropathies are critical to identify because of potential reversibility and limitation of toxicity. Symptoms are generally indistinguishable from prototypic toxic neuropathies, including initial distal paresthesias and sensory loss in a stocking distribution affecting large or small fiber modalities or both, and lesser and later onset distal motor impairment.
