I also am taking flexeril, nortryptoline, and advil with my percocet
I take aleve on days I am achy. Then flexeril in the evening bedtime to help relax to sleep. I tried lidocain patches but they didn't work. Massage therapy has helped so much twice a week with strengthening exercises.
Neurontin for tingling everywhere especially facial pain - helps me sleep a little better
Oxycarbazepine for strong tingling - makes me dopey at work so I don't take it very often
Imitrex for headaches & eye aches - I don't think it works
Over-the-counter sleeping pills because of nerve pain preventing me from falling asleep
Also, I tried Lyrica at first but it kept me awake in a weird buzzed-like trance, and I couldn't walk straight & couldn't tell which way was up.
Hmmm...I actually was thinking of try ing Lyrica instead of Gabapentin b/c I was told that it had less side effects than Gabapentin. It looks like the opposite thing happened with you? I am thinking of trialing Lyrica soon...any comments would be appreciated.
I'm on Valium for unsteadiness and Compazine for nausea. Nothing really works for my headaches, I just take Tylenol and cross my fingers. My dr recently prescribed Acetazolamide but I have not started it yet. This medicine reduces your CSF so I'm very curious to try it.
