To compare safety and efficacy of pregabalin and desvenlafaxine respectively for treating Neuropathic Pain. 04 patients were entered into a prospective observational study of pregabalin and desvenlafaxine in neuropathic pain for 6 months. Patients were randomly arranged into 2 groups, 52 patients received pregabalin and other group of 52 patients received desvenlafaxine. The initialassessement were made during the first visit and two subsequent reviews were done in 2 months interval, up to 6 months. Visual analogue pain scores, incidence of side effects were measured. The pain scores(mean±S.D.) were 5.37±1.14 and 6.7±1.39 respectively for desvenlafaxine and pregabalin.The low pain score of desvenlafaxine was associated with prolonged pain relief. There were pronounced differences in incidence of side effect between the two drugs: pregabalin, 36.5% compared to desvenlafaxine, 7%. The study findings revealed that desvenlafaxine is more safe and efficacious than pregabalin. Thus this study recommends the use of desvenlafaxine for neuropathic pain over pregabalin
