Categorized Table of medications
CMTA’s list of neurotoxic medications is good to check no matter the cause of your neuropathy.

CMTA, an association similar to Calgary Neuropathy Association but specific for people with Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) Disease (a hereditary neuropathy), has compiled an excellent list of neurotoxic medications.  Make yourself aware of these medications as they may increase damage to nerves.  It is also a good idea to give a copy of the list to your doctor to raise their awareness.  If your doctor recommends one of the medications on this list, have a frank discussion with him/her about the potential risks vs. benefits and other alternatives.

Access the List of neurotoxic medications by going to the CMTA website: https://www.cmtausa.org/resource-center/treatment-management/neurotoxic-medications/
