- Recommendation ID
Is response to pharmacological treatment predicted more reliably by underlying aetiology or by symptom characteristics?
- Any explanatory notes
There is little evidence about whether certain symptoms that present in healthcare settings, or whether different neuropathic pain conditions with different aetiologies, respond differently to different treatments. Current evidence is typically focused on particular conditions and is limited to particular drugs.
