I also over-pronate just on one foot which gives me lots of injury problems in my left leg. I've never really cracked it but the theoretical answer is differently shaped orthotics in left and right shoe. Best to see a podiatrist to assess you properly as they may recommend both feet need one rather than just the left. I have tried them several times but never made much progress.
I don't get the bit about neutral shoes on their own - neutral shoes combined with orthotics yes. I tend to just wear shoes for over pronators and the 'good' foot/leg doesn't seem to suffer for it.
Make sure you do your runs in both directions, it sounds silly but it's not a mickey take. If you run a particular route the road or pavement camber present will have an effect, and when I had a right sided injury I alternated my runs make both sides work evenly
