Prior to third treatment (triple w/ Inc) he had to go off Lexapro because it is on the list of drugs not to take with Inc, and she switched him to Citalopram, again to avoid the psychological side effects of treatment.

I had brain surgery for Trigeminal Neuralgia in Sept 2006 and still suffer daily with facial pain on average of a 7. I am on Neurontin, Tegretol, trileptal, seraquel, cymbalta, protonics, atenenol and clonopin also. I am always in pain, constipated, either sleep for days or dont sleep at all for days. I am so messed up by this pain. I have not worked in 2 years and my life is basically just falling apart.
