Abstract Most reported successes on the use of infusion therapy for the treatment of neuropathy and neuropathic pain appear to be with IV Ketamine. In 2003, Jorum et al reported on a double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover study where IV Ketamine was evaluated in the treatment of peripheral neuropathy. The authors demonstrated that Ketamine caused a decrease in hyperalgesia and allodynia.

Headaches: In a study by Williams and Stark, 71 patients presenting with chronic daily headaches were treated with IV Lidocaine. The patients were treated for a mean of 8.7 days at a dose of 2mg/kg. Of those treated, 90% reported an improvement in symptoms or a complete absence of headaches upon completion of the treatment. At 1-month and 6-month follow-up visits, the patients reported a 76% and 70% overall improvement in their symptoms, respectively.
