Any advise on meds for TN that have worked for you?
I was recently diagnosed with TN and have been having an awful time getting the pain under control. So far nothing I have been on has touched the pain to where I get any solid relief. I have so far been on the full dose of neurotin and Lyrica. I have just started trileptal but no good results yet. All these medications have just zonked me out, although it seems the neurotin maybe improved my mood oddly enough. I was just wondering if anyone has been able to manage their pain with meds and if so which ones. I will probably do or take any med to get this managed!
Thanks in advance for all the advice!

Some other meds that can help for TN are Baclofen and carbamazepine. Most definitely discuss your out of control pain situation with your doctor soon as there's no need for you to go on long term like this.
My hubby takes carma for borderline personality disorder and it is a high dose and he has to have regular blood tests to check his liver as it can do damage to it.....just wondering if anyone else has to do this also. Thanks .
