They gave my mother trileptal for back pain and nerve ending pain would trileptal work for her pain? She's very sceptical about the medicine and I can't seem to find anything about trileptal being perscribed for back pain or nerve ending pain in the shoulders neck or back
This is an "off label" use of Trileptal - a use that is not FDA approved but commonly used. Your mother may find this link interesting - it is comments form patients who have tried Trileptal for nerve pain (trigeminal neuralgia).
