Abstract:  The author focuses on chronic neuropathic pain and opioid tolerance. He provides a seven-step protocol for using N-methyl-D-aspartate antagonists to reduce opioid load and an algorithm for treating chronic neuropathic pain. Side effects caused by opioids and N-methyl-D-aspartate antagonists are compared and contrasted, and a figure illustrates a map of the human dermatomes.
