[QUOTE=april1848;3569984]Klonopin is a narcotic--it's a benzodiazepine, in the same family as valium and xanax. To me, it takes longer to kick in and lasts longer than xanax. It has really helped me a lot.
Well that's good news to hear :) I'm fairly sure I'm not dealing with an infection as far as the mouth goes... no visible signs, several times blood work done and CBC excellent, no fevers, etc. It's almost not there in the morning, by later day I could cry from the pain of it, and I can feel sharp shooting pains coming from just below my eye (mainly right side) down my face into my chin and neck. They're like mini firecrackers that light up every once in a while out of the blue, and the mouth just aches in pain. No surprise, when the firecrackers aren't around, the burning is lesser. So frustrating! But I found oxycodone was actually helping the burning mouth.
Gonna inquire with the neuro tomorrow and see what they can do.
