  • Neuromodulators for pain management in rheumatoid arthritis (2012)

    This research focused on the study of the efficacy and safety of neuromodulators in the treatment of pain in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). According to the results obtained in this research, it could be concluded that there is weak evidence that oral nefopam, topical capsaicin and oromucosal cannabis are all superior to placebo in reducing pain in patients with RA. Confidence in our estimates is not strong given the difficulties with blinding, the small number of participants evaluated and the lack of adverse event data. In some patients, however, even a small degree of pain relief can be considered valuable. It is advisable to carry out future research and obtain more information about it. View study
