Advice & Tips: Probably cuts 85% of nerve pain. Would rather not continue to take this as it is an epilepsy drug and am wondering what it is doing to my brain. New York is on the Opiod bandwagon and all doctors are afraid of prescribing anything other than hydrocodone. I would rather take Percocet and cut 95% of all my nerve pain and not take this anymore.
