Duloxetine (30mg) for neuralgia

I use Cymbalta for neuralgia. i am happy with it, it takes the edge of the pain, so it is bearable. The first couple of weeks less alert and tired though.

Methadone

Methadone (5mg) for neuralgia

After a couple of years using morphines this one became less effective. Switched to Methadone. It works against the pain. It takes a long time to wean down or to stop even. Months of pain, flew like symptoms and detox feelings. really horrible, this despite taking it slow. Now 5 months later I still have these feelings once in a while.

Tramadol

5/15/2017 | | 57moderated by Henry
Tramadol (200mg) for neuralgia

this drug is worse than the illness but whenever I say I want to stop all I hear is that I need to see the psychiatrist even though I don't even have one! Side effects: disturbed personality, often feeling list, sleeplessness waking 3 or 4 times a night, anxiety and panic, cold sweats and often feel like my life is over, with no future.

Gabapentin (100mg) for neuralgia

I took gabapentine to see if I genuinely to have neuralgia. After lots of discomforting and worrying side effects when I was getting used to it (above all headache and extreme tiredness), I am now, after 2 months, experiencing hair loss and muscle pain. On top of that, I've lost a heck of a lot of weight, but that might be because I'm a student and can't have alcohol with this medicine. What I ...

Lyrica

Pregabalin (150mg) for neuralgia

After starting on 3 x a day 50 mg lyrica I had to increase to 2 x a day 150 mg because of nerve pain from the hernia. The only side effect is a dry mouth. The problems I had with urine retention because of the hernia have now gone away thanks to the lyrica.

Oxycodone

Oxycodone (10mg) for neuralgia

After several operations I had to go on oxycodone. Took it for 2 years and had to keep taking more. Really addictive (spent a week in the hospital trying to kick it). So don't take it for more than 2 weeks.

Pregabalin (150mg) for neuralgia

After fracturing my heel and an operation for severe neuralgia. Pain specialist prescribed lyrica with gradual increase. For the past month I have struggled with tingling in my head. I want to know if this is caused by the lyrica??? Given me a really nervous and anxious feeling. Just enough or not quite enough blood is getting to my brain. Is this a recognised phenomenon is there anyone here wh...

Pregabalin (150mg) for neuralgia

I definitely benefit from Lyrica, but only as far as the nerve pain in my legs goes. As soon as I notice the pain coming on, I take a bit more than 150 mg because I have no time for pain that isn't necessary.

Gabapentin

Gabapentin (300mg) for neuralgia

I finally had surgery for a hernia (L5-S1) last October. Unfortunately the pain only decreased slightly. I had an epidural injection combined with Gabapentine three times a day. As a result the pain decreased, but the side effects are still serious. Side effects are a dry mouth, hot flashes and a red face like when having a fever. Also heartburn, dizziness and double vision. These should decrea...

Pregabalin (75mg) for neuralgia

The first 4 days it made me feel sleepy during the day, but the painful tingling in my hands was gone. So I continued and now even the sleepiness has disappeared.

Pregabalin (75mg) for neuralgia

The nerve pain was in my right buttock and was really bad. The first day I took this, I was almost ecstatic with the result: the pain was, near enough, completely gone. The second day the pain came back in full force.

Amoxicillin

Amoxicillin (500mg) for neuralgia

Got from the dentist for nerve pain because I was going on holiday. Had hellish pain in my molar and after one day it was already less thank god! First few days it make me nauseous and dizzy. The worst side effect is the constipation. Despite all the negative experiences I've read I am actually really happy with this and rather this than that hellish pain. So actually hardly suffered at all wit...

Amitriptyline

Amitriptyline (10mg) for neuralgia

Prescribed for MS pain. Medicine works really well in this respect, but the side effects (particularly the dry mouth) are, at the moment, worse than the problem itself. So that's why I've decided to switch to Lyrica.

Lyrica

Pregabalin (150mg) for neuralgia

Switched to Lyrica after trying amitriptyline and prozac. Haven't had a single moment of regret. Pain (due to MS) almost totally gone as well as the side effects from amitriptyline. Occasional issues with a dry mouth but apart from that, side-effect and pain free!

Amitriptyline (25mg) for neuralgia

A few years ago my pain levels in my neck and shoulders overnight increased. I wasn't getting enough sleep. It's difficult to keep the pain at bay. Amitriptyline is the perfect drug as far as this goes. But if you need to get to work and get up on time and be alert and awake it's quite difficult. I stopped taking it about a week ago and straight away I was waking up 2 hours earlier every day, f...

Together with paracetamol - 3x 1000 mg a day - in agreement with the GP - first week 2x 75 mg a day had no effect, dose was doubled, GP consented, no effect, so stopped after 3 weeks.
