This chapter discusses the unique and miscellaneous drugs that play a role in chronic pain management. The therapies can be used for analgesia, to address comorbidities associated with chronic pain, and to manage side effects associated with commonly used analgesics. Essentially, this chapter provides a diverse group of pharmacological questions that are important for the armamentarium of the pain physician. Topics range from neuroleptics to antispasticity drugs and sympatholytic drugs. Knowledge of these sometimes rarely used drugs can be highly useful in challenging situations.
