Has anyone taking this for Trigenimal Neuralgia and am taking starting taking Phenyytoin 100mg 2x a day. Trigeminal neuralgia is a chronic neuropathic pain disorder characterized by episodes of sudden, severe facial pain. Pain arises from the trigeminal nerve, which carries sensory messages to and from the face. People with trigeminal neuralgia describe their pain as an excruciating shock-like or burning sensation on one side of the lower face, cheek or jaw or around the eye.
