Question for any of you taking nerve pain meds (neurontin, topomax, amitriptyline etc.)
I'm taking Topomax and finding it works well for my nerve pain, but I do have breakthrough (BT) pain if I walk too much (have not figured out my limit, but sadly, its not a whole lot). I can take additional narcotic-class or anti-inflammatory pain meds for other BT pain i.e. muscle or low back, but I can't just up my intake of Topomax, what do others do in this situation?
