When you understand more about your condition, and this means any condition whether it is shingles or something else, probably you will find that you are less worried about it and therefore you ‘suffer less’ with it. So getting the Shingles and post herpetic neuralgia pack to improve your understanding what it is and how shingles and post herpetic neuralgia can be treated will be beneficial. In particular, it is useful to understand that the treatments that doctors prescribe to deal with the pain of PHN are appropriate, although the package does not necessarily mention that these are pain treatments. Antidepressant and anti-epileptic tablets have been found to have useful effects in calming down the nerve pains of PHN.
