Have tried antidepressants--problems with heart (A-Fib). Seems to be no cure. Finally found a dentist that is not so aggressive. This was important. as I found treatment in my mouth always causes more severe pain.
Try a good brand (Swanson or Sundown) of Alpha Lipoic Acid 600 mg. I started with 600 mg, morning and evening. I'm now up to 3600 mg /day (1800 mg morning & 1800 mg night). Search, Dr. Roy Rogers--Dermatology/Research. I can't thank him enough, this noted researcher and his work with ALA and BMS.The reduction in pain and burning was amazing! There doesn't seem to be any bad side effects(Dr. Roger says take as much as you need to stop the burning) (urine smells different) and Iv'e been taking this quantity for 2 yrs.
I've experimented with oolong tea to help coat the lip areas; and it does work to a certain extent. I'm still working with it. I've used Magic Mouthwash (ask your medical doc with some age on). It's a pharmacy compounded wash that gives temporary relief (2-3 hrs.). Since I started ALA therapy I've not used MM.
Good luck and I pray this helps your situation.
