I am sorry he is having this very frustrating problem. I use Neurontin for patients with neuropathy with good results. It is generally thought that less than 900 mg/daily is sub-therapeutic. I will add that I have several older folks who swear that 100 mg at bedtime takes care of the problem.
I recommend he see a neurologist. There are even some pharmacists who can compound a topical medication for the neuropathic pain.
