Patient Information Leaflets

The Faculty of Pain Medicine has produced patient information leaflets on medications commonly used to treat persistent pain. The first five provide basic information on amitriptyline, nortriptyline, pregabalin, gabapentin and duloxetine. The leaflets were created with the help of multi-professionals as well as patient representatives and are intended to be handed out to patients when they are prescribed these medications. The leaflets can be used within a variety of clinical settings including Pain Management Services, GP practice, community pharmacies and physiotherapy clinics. The Faculty is currently developing information leaflets on interventions.

We hope that you and your patients will find these accessible and easy to understand. If you have any feedback, please contact us at fpm@rcoa.ac.uk
