Re: Topamax for Nerve Pain
I did get some pain relief from nerve pain with Topamax, however, I was using it in conjunction with Lyrica. It is not what they call a "first line drug" for nerve pain. Usually Lyrica, Neurontin and Cymbalta are the first-line treatment of choice for nerve pain. But I found Topamax to be a helpful addition to the Lyrica. I ditched it as soon as I did not need it anymore due to fatigue but did find it helpful for stabbing pain. Now if you have aching and not stabbing, shooting, burning pain, etc, then you are on the wrong class of medication for your type of pain.
