Known Neuro Toxins
The CMTA has a list of medications that people with CMT should avoid. It is not known if these medications can also be harmful to GAN patients. Some medications listed are antibiotics. Many doctors have told us that if GAN were named a disease 10 or 15 years later, it would likely be one of the CMTs. Charcot-Marie-Tooth is an umbrella diagnosis for inherited neuropathies.
