    Hi Dawn

    You have my total sympathy. 

    Which medication did your Dr prescribe for you?

    Have you been referred to a Neurologist?

    By all means please do let us know how you're getting on.

    Kind regards

      Hi Dawn

      Being tearful could've been the medication as it effects people different ways. You're on the best medication there is, in my opinion, I only wish I could've gone back on it.

      Let the tablets take its course and in no time you'll be able to get through your days ok.

      We are all here for you.

      Sorry Gloria, I only went on the medication yesterday, the tearfulnes is a symptem of TN so the Dr said, he has advised me to take a few weeks off work, in which I have reluctantly done so, as I am so tired, but also releived that i know whats up with me now, hopefully i Wont need to be referred to a neurologist if the medication works, still need to take pain killers, which help a little, thanks for asking. Cheer's Dawn

      Oh sorry Dawn, I misinterpreted what you meant.

      The tiredness is probably due to the medication making you drowsy. I used to be ok mornings and by late pm I was like a zombie and was often in bed by 9pm. Fingers crossed after your absence from work you should soon be back on track and feel a bit better than you were.

      Do you take your tablets after food?
