hi, im back again. when i first had TN i was on oxcarbazepine which made me look like a whale and week after week the tablets weren't working. i was put on tegretol and for 4 months it was like i'd never had TN, i was on 400mg of tegretol, i had a wondeful summer, made new freinds, drank alcohol, took tablets with alcohol and so on. back in december 2015 the pain started again and had to double up on tegretol and today im on 1200mg of tegretol and back to being petrified of the pain which i had today. i don't know if its breakthrough pain or the tablets just aren't working and don't know what to do, i am at the doctors tomoro and don't know whats going to happen. i had seen a neuro who i believe was the hospital janitor who had stolen a neuros badge and locked the real neuro in the cupboard. i had seen pain clinic but the tegretol was working a treat and only needed counselling and still waiting for that to come through. i have read about botox being a wonder treatment and have also heard of RADIOFREQUENCY LESIONING which is supposed to be one of the best, has anyone had any of these treatments? but for now till i can get my hands on either, what drug should i try next?? i am also on gabapentin.
