How PRIALT May Work

PRIALT works differently than narcotics (opioids)

PRIALT binds to N-type calcium channels in the spinal cord according to results from animal studies. This prevents pain signals from reaching the brain. The exact way PRIALT works in people with severe chronic pain is unknown. In clinical studies, PRIALT has been shown to help relieve different types of pain—nociceptive, neuropathic, and mixed.
