I take Neurotin, Baclofen, Cymbalta, and Oxycontin – and I still have the nerve pain. My doc reduced the Neurotin because I was also having uncontrolled jerks – significant spasms that caused me to drop chalk, pencils and papers in front of the classroom, drop cups, forks and food, lurch against the wall, desks or whatever. The reduction stopped the jerks and the related nerve pain that went with them, but I still get “lightning bolts” from time to time. I would love to continue to reduce or eliminate my meds, but I am afraid I still need them. Neither my neurologist or my internist seem to feel it is time to reduce any more. So, I swallow pills every 4 hours – morning and night. Oh, well.
