Question Question on your meds for Tregiminal

Hi Folks, dickytax is my name. I am 80 years old and have been diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia on the right side. I am curious about the meds others are taking and if it is helping. I take 300 mg /day of Lyrica. It helps but not very much. The nerve pain is near the jaw hinge but more in the muscle than bone structure.

No - gabapentin and neurontin are the same. Pregabalin is Lyrica.

I was given Tegratol. Might not be spelled right.. But after a month on it my whole body broke out in a rash, went to dr and he said I was allergic to it..Put me on Nurontin ....that didn't help so I went off it. I take nothing now.
