Neurontin (not sure of its catagory, and it was the first medicine that helped alleviate the skin sensations, albiet mildly) then into anti-depressants. Nortriptyline, Amitriptyline, elevil, lexapro, effexor xr
, Paxil CR, zoloft, wellbutrin xl etc. Well, placebo effect perhaps, but 5 hours after taking the paxil, the stinging was *significantly* decreased and for the first time in months i was able to sleep. Wellbutrin helped slightly too.
