There are several drugs listed in the Charcot Marie Tooth literature which are believed to be toxic to peripheral nerves. No studies have been done yet on the affects of these drugs on people with HNPP. It is best to avoid these drugs until further information is available.
Please see the CMT site listed for the drug list. If you have HNPP, it would be helpful to print this list and give it to your physicians and pharmacists.
