I have been taking the meds for a month. 200 mg split in half twice a day. I felt better at first, but then the DR upped the dose and I got lots of the listed side effects including hair loss. I am ashamed to admit it, but I was almost more upset about the hair loss than the jaw pain! So, I am taking 200mg split in half again and ALEVE. Honestly the less I think about it the better I feel. ... Show Full Comment

Since starting this medication I have a difficult time remembering things, especially when I am suppose to take the medicine. I also have an issue with fake heaving and mucus build up.

Comment:
I take this medication in conjunction with Neurontin for Trigeminal Neuralgia (sharp, stabbing electric like pain in my face that will stop me in my tracks when it hits). I have had this condition since 1997 and after trying many combinations of medications, this drug and Neurontin together have been wonderful.
