Also trileptal, gabapentin/neurontin, soma/Carisoprodol, and more.

Soma is a seditive, I suppose it would help sleep through the pain.

"Soma is a muscle relaxer that works by blocking pain sensations between the nerves and the brain." From: Drugs.com.
Yep. That's why I mentioned it.

Neurontin, or the Generic version, Gabapentin, seems to work very well with the neuropathic pain I have in my knees.

It's the best medicine I have found that does me any good.

Other medications have been suggested, and those could very well in addition to the Gabapentin. Bu I have found that I really don't need them, as the Gabapentin seems to work alone.

I meant to say "works" very well.

Some suppliments are good for neuropathy as well. Vit B-1 B-6 B-12 and also Alpha Lipoic acid. The FDA is finally doing research on Lipoic acid and is finding it does help along with gabapentin or lyrica. I rather have gabapentin as it's cheaper and seems to have less side effects than lyrica.

Neurontin is the most common. Not many are prescribing SOMA anymore due to the high abuse level.
