Try lyrica or a combination of cymbalta and
Lyrica. Works for me.
its the tegretol I am on two tablets a day, they build up in your system I think so you cant take them as an when you are in pain, (they are not painkillers but work on the nerves that cause the pain.
I have had no side effects apart from dropping off to sleep alot when i am not active
for pain relief I have been given tramadol hydrocloride tablets. but I dont really have to take them as the other tablets work so well.
before i was on the Tegetol my attacks lasted for up to 12 hours and i would cry from the pain it was so bad in my ear teeth neck sinus and eye. so a little sleepiness is a small price to pay.
how long have you suffered, and good luck with the mri
Did you mean the Tegretol worked good for you ?
what dosage did they start you on ?
I have only taken .5 ativan so far.......it helps at night some.
I have to get an mri this week
Yes I am on the same tablets, I havent had any side effects apart from falling asleep alot when watching television. however they completely stopped the pain so worth you trying them , they take a while to work so try them for a month or somethng .
what type of "tablets" did the dr. give you ? I just came from a neuro surgeon and he gave me a script for tegretol......but after looking at the side effects ........I dont want to take it..........I am in lots of on and off pain more on then off..............ativan helped me...........I also have neck pain
What tablets are you taking?
