My trial failed. TN is still here. :(

Posted , 1 user is following.

Well my reduced dosage of Pregabalin to see if my TN had disappeared, as my 9 months is up, has failed. I reduced my dosage by 25mg from 75mg to 50mg and within a week the pain shot back with awful electric shocks in my right Jaw and right thru my teeth. So now I'm back on 75mg and waiting for the dosage to settle. 

My 9 months history is quite evident does not work with Pregabalin as it did with the Tegretol I used to be on. I guess as you get older these prescribed drugs obviously works differently.

So god knows how long I will have this TN for now.

    Sorry to hear that.i have had horrendous gum and mouth pain all  morning since I woke at 6 to let the cat out.Now noon. Just added  another 25mg pregabalin.I took normal dose of 75 mg at 4am and never did anything up against the TN.I think it's moving your head to a different angle.Also took 5mg oxycodone which I usually take if I have a flare up at night. So won't be looking forward to future.Best Wishes

    After 30years of suffering, I have found out that an effective remedy for TN is just two pills of anti varicose vein tablets twice a day for two days.

    Use alternative herbal tablets which cause minimum side effects
