Special issue Note

Non-opioidanalgesics in Pain Management

The field of pain management is continuously evolving. Management of perioperative pain is usually with opioids or NSAIDS. Research is now evolving into the use of unconventional analgesics to help with nociceptive and neuropathic pain.
1. Membrane stabilizers/Sodium channel blockers – Lidocaine and Mexiletine
2. Anticonvulsants- Carbamazepine, Sodium Valproate, Gabapentin
3. Tricyclic antidepressants- Amitriptyline, Nortryptiline, Desiprimine, Protriptyline, Doxepin
4. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors- Venlafaxine, Tramadol
5. TRPV1 agonists- Capsaicin
6. NMDA receptor antagonists- Ketamine
7. Vitamin therapies- IV magnesium, Vitamin C, Vitamin D
8. Spinal alpha agonists- Clonidine, Dexmetomidine
9. Other medication trials are ongoing based on site of action- Tetratodoxin etc.
This special section will be devoted to papers that demonstrate the benefits of these medications in pain therapies.
