    Amitriptyline for Trigeminal neuralgia

    Have been around 8 weeks amitriptyline 10mg. Does not really help me. Have extreme pain attacks that can last several days. Can not live normally for a long time. I am still very young. Got TN after 4 NNH OPs with a cartilage transplant, after botched Caldwell Luc OP. Only slowly, what that means. Much power

    Side effects: Mouth dryness

    Amitriptyline for Trigeminal neuralgia

    In the summer of 2007 after an unsuccessful dental procedure I got a trigeminal neuralgia. It was treated with carbamazepine last year (1200mg / day). But unfortunately there was a habituation effect and I had pain despite the maximum dose. After then also a liver damage was determined, I have discontinued the drug with the agreement of the doctor. At some point, the pain subsided and passed. In August of this year then again the horror. From morning to night the worst pain again, I could not speak anymore, did not eat – it was fatal. Again, I went to the doctor and this time I was prescribed an antidepressant called Amitriptyline Neuraxpharm 25 Mg. It struck immediately, but had to dose to 2x25mg. I take them for about 30 days, get along well. The pain is not completely gone, but I can live with the pain that occurs. Side effects, however, are extreme dry mouth, fatigue and slight weight gain. But I can recommend the preparation for trigeminal neuralgia as an alternative. Also got gabapentin at the beginning of neuralgia, which has not struck. I hope that soon the story calms down and I can sell the pills.
