Then 3 tablets (2 in the am, and 1 in the pm) for 7 days. Then 2 tablets 2 times a day for 7 days. Will I be taking this medication indefinately, or will this perscription alleviate the pain permanently?
If your TN responds well, and goes into remission, you might be able to take a holiday from the trileptal. Your start up dosage is the same as mine. It may take several months before a remission. My doctor wants me to cut my dosage in half in a few months to see how I do. Each case is unique. Ask your doctor about a drug holiday or cutting back if your TN goes into remission.
