What is PRIALT?
PRIALT® (ziconotide) intrathecal infusion (25 mcg/mL, 100 mcg/mL) is a prescription medicine used to treat severe chronic pain in adults who cannot take other treatments or when other treatments do not work, stop working or cause bothersome side effects. PRIALT can only be delivered by or under the direction of a doctor who injects the medicine into your spinal fluid through a special device (a procedure called intrathecal infusion) and should only be used in patients who are considered appropriate for this procedure.
Who might benefit from PRIALT?
Your chronic pain condition may be a result of more than one cause—damage to body tissues (nociceptive), damage to the nervous system (neuropathic), or a mix of the two. These causes of pain can be described as pain types.
Pain that is partly neuropathic can show up in many different conditions*:
- Complex regional pain syndrome
- Diabetic neuropathy
- Failed back surgery syndrome
- HIV-related neuropathy
- Lumbar radiculopathy
- Multiple sclerosis
- Phantom limb syndrome
- Spinal cord injury
- Tumor Compression
*This list does not include all of the pain conditions that have a neuropathic component.
