My friend has recently been diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia. He started on Lyrica, but stopped due to side effects. Started taking Tegretol almost 3 weeks ago 200mg per day. Is now up to 1000mg per day. He found that the 1st couple of days he was heaps better and then the excruciating pain would begin again, up the dose, relief for a few days, pain, up the dose etc. At what point does he go up to, he is extremely irritable and upset (as am I), and needs some advice. Hasn't got a regular doctor, doesn't trust them for many many reasons. Please advise! Thanx
