nuerontin

I have had severe pain in the right temple area since the late '90's.  I am on 300 mg of nuerontin 5 times a day.  First, what is the long term side affects from this medicine and second, is nerve blocker surgery a safe option?  I had an inter-spinal appendamoma, c1-c3, removed in 1990 at the Mayo clinic.  My right side was affected.  The only way to help the pain is to push my finger against the area. Thank you. Glenn

Hi glenn,
Long term side effects are asthenia, malaise, face edema, hypertension, anorexia, flatulence, gingivitis, hyperthyroid, hypothyroid, goiter, hypoestrogen, ovarian failure, epididymitis, swollen testicle, cushingoid appearance, purpura most often described as bruises resulting from physical trauma, arthralgia, vertigo, hyperkinesia, paresthesia, decreased or absent reflexes, increased reflexes, anxiety, hostility, Infrequent, pneumonia, abnormal vision, dizziness, somnolence, and peripheral edema.
It is safe to do nerve block surgery.
You can discuss with neurosurgeon before the procedure.
