Back to the doctor's today ....too many side effects from the oxcarb...similar to the side effects I had with the carbamazepine. Doctor gave me the choice of trying Dilantin or going back on the gabapentin which I tolerated but like all the drugs pain would keep on coming back two days after each increase. I am going to take 48 hours to clear my system and then go back on the gabapentin really slowly. The goal is no longer to be pain free but to reach a balance....to have the pain tolerable and the least amount of side effects. So far I have been lucky, except for at the onset I have not had many of the electric shock like pains, mine is more of constant heavy pain that ranges in severity. Hopefully this will all work out
