  • Pain Treatment Options?

    I have an appt with my pain doc coming up, and I was wondering if anyone has any good medication suggestions.

    I currently take Lyrica at 225 mg and Ativan as needed.

    I've tried Cymbalta but I couldn't urinate while taking it, and it was awful because I would feel a very painful urge and my bladder woould hurt because it was urine....and I couldn't urinate it out. No way am I trying Cymbalta again. I was told that Amitriptyline would cause the same effect since they are so similiar.

    What other pain meds can I add to Lyrica to help treat neuropathic pain? I really dont' want to take opiods.

    Thanks!
    Current treatment:
    Elmiron 100mg 3x a day
    Hydroxyzine 75mg
    Lyrica 100mg 3x a day
    Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy started 12/10
    Ativan 1-2mg as needed

    I've seen Neurontin mentioned here on the forum several times. It seems like there are quite a few people who take it or have tried it. I haven't personally taken it but it is commonly used for nerve pain.
