I am trying to find a balance with my meds and have tried everything! I know some people do not agree w/ narcotics to treat TN, but I have atypical bilateral TN, RSD, and migrains. Narcotics, though I HATE them...Hate hate hate them....is the only thing that helps me survive at all. I know of one person who takes over 20 narcotic tablets a day. It was what finally helped her get just enough relief to have a life again. I need to know what others with my type of situation are doing that helps. Do any of you take more than 20 a day that is prescribed that way? I wish I could never take anything! I never drink alcohol or nothing, because I can not stand to feel drunk, which drives my doctor crazy since pain meds tend to do that to you at times and i keep telling him I don't want to feel that way. I have had microvascular decompression surgery, exploratory brain surgery, and so many different treatments that have failed. Please tell me what amount works for any of you. Thanks so much!
