Sarapin Injections

Sarapin is a pain medication made from the pitcher plant. This plant has been used as medicine for hundreds of years. Sarapin is FDA approved to treat back and neck pain. Since Sarapin is derived from a natural substance, it cannot be patented. Drug companies do not market drugs that are not patented. Due to this lack of marketing, many providers and patients have never heard of Sarapin, even though it has been in use for 70 years.

Sarapin is a type of nerve-blocking medicine. It treats pain by blocking pain signals at the spinal column. Unlike some nerve-blocking drugs, Sarapin does not affect other nerves or cause coordination problems. It is most commonly used for sciatica, intercostal neuralgia, occipital neuritis, lumbar neuralgia, and trigeminal neuralgia.

Sarapin is given by injection. Your provider may inject it in one spot or in several different locations, depending on treatment goals. You may feel a temporary sensation of heaviness or heat near the injection site.

Sarapin can also be used as a trigger point injection. Toxicity tests have revealed that it is harmless, and no adverse events have ever been associated with the use of analgesic throughout its 70 year history.

The pain syndromes most commonly treated with Sarapin include:

  • Sciatic Pain
  • Intercostal Neuralgia
  • Alcoholic Neuritis
  • Occipital Neuritis
  • Brachial Plexus Neuralgia
  • Meralgia Paresthetica
  • Lumbar Neuralgia
  • Trigeminal Neuralgia

  • "I was having headaches everyday due to concussions. My moods were unpredictable and I always felt like I was in a fog. I would have migraines at least once a week. I just didn't feel right and no one was able to tell me what was wrong. The neurologists I went to see would simply say I needed time to rest my brain after a concussion. They didn't tell me what part of my brain was affected or offer any form of treatment. I was frustrated and looking for anything to make me feel better. I went to Dr. Ruben as a last hope. Little did I know he was exactly what I needed. Dr. Ruben took his time to find out exactly what was wrong with me, bringing me not only piece of mind but also a solution. Today, I am feeling more like myself again. I haven't had a migraine in over two months and I can't remember the last time I had a headache. It was the first time in a long time that I felt like a doctor really cared. Thank you Dr. Ruben for giving me my life back!"

  • "I have been to other chiropractors, but none have provided the care or knowledge I received from Dr. St. Laurent. He was able to find the root causes to improve my brain chemistry. His understanding of neurology and adjusting techniques had me back on my feet in a few days with less visits."
