It's been a little over 3 weeks since I've been Oxcarbazepine. I have noticed a vast improvement in the amount of pain. The last time I had blood work done, doctors noticed elevated liver enzymes and attributed it to the Carbamazepine I had been taking. The Ox has had noticeably fewer side effects (actually, I can't seem to think of any I've experienced), and I've been able to control the neuralgia with a low dose. Currently, I take 400-600mg of Ox and 1200-1800mg of Gabapentin. The higher dose of Gabapentin makes me sleepy but a low dose makes me hyper. I haven't found the happy medium yet.
