Phone consultation with Doc. 100mg 2x per day. Tegratol. Pain no better. Bought co codamol and anadin extra. Rang again 5 days later total agony. Oh rang dentist got emergency appointment for x-ray just to make sure no abscess. Dr put me on 4x per day Tegratol and Naproxen 500mg 2xper day. Pain gone can now eat hot/cold food an drinks. Two back teeth feel a bit strange. Shall I carry on with Naproxen? Back on 2x per day as from tomoz.
Does anybody know much on Trigeminal neuralgia. I wouldn’t wish it on anybody.
Thank you for any help.

I'm glad you've had relief from upping your medication.
Some years ago, I was put on Gabapentin, which helped. I was started on a low dose, which didn't help at first, but when the right dose was eventually reavhed (800mg) it took the evil pain away. I was on them for about 3-4 years, and gradually reduced them. From time to time I get a flare up, not as bad as it originally was. I hope you can continue to escape this awful affliction. Best wishes.

Thank you Patsy 33. Hope to come off tegratol next week.
No I have never experienced the pain of Trigeminal Neuralgia.
As you are now pain free,I should hold back on the Tegretol and Naproxine and keep them in hand for the first signs of pain in your face and then start on the dose mentioned of each of the tablets.
It may recur or not, it is just a matter of waiting and see.
