This discussion thread invites members of the group to identify the medications they use for Type 2 Trigeminal Neuralgia or Neuropathy. These types of pain usually present as 24-7 throbbing, aching, burning pain instead of volleys of intense electric shock pain seen in Type I (Classical) TN. I will also broadcast this discussion intro to all members of this group and the Opioids group. Please answer three questions:
(1) What medication or combinations of medications has a doctor prescribed for your Type 2 TN or Trigeminal Neuropathy pain?
(2) For each of these medications, was your pain reduced?
(3) What treatments other than medication were you also using at the same time?
I will collect and analyze all responses to this posting, and announce an update to our Face Pain Info pages when I have put the responses in some reasonable order.
