Anyone ever try Zonegren?  My Neuro and I are still in search of the ideal cocktail.
Thanks,

It is a siezure drug that is now being used to treat cerebral vaso spasm, like Topamax or Neurontin or Depakote.

I HAD CH  FOR 11 YEARS, IN JAN THEY CAME ON  EVERY 2 HOURS  THRU APRIL. I HAD TO HAVE SURGERY ON   DISC  C 4   AND C5 . AFTER SURGERY I GOT ON ZONEGRAN 200MG AT BEDTIME I HAVE BEEN CH FREE FOR 221 DAYS PRAISE GOD.  KEEP IN MIND, THE SURGERY ALSO, I DON'T CARE WHAT YOUR NEURO SAYS, THE TRI NERVE MAY GO TO C4 C5  , MINE DID AND MY CORD WAS PINCHED TO 50%. SO I ENCOURAGE YOU  GET A MRI TO INCLUDE YOUR NECK. I KNOW THE SURGERY HELPED AND  I AM CONVINCED THE ZONEGRAN HELPED WITH NO SIDE AFFECTS.

            GOD  BLESS YOU

I tried Zonegran and Inderal together.  It worked for 2 weeks but then they came back.  I also developed a kidney infection, be sure to drink lots of water.  

Good Luck!

I recently was prescribed Zonegren with Neurontin along with Robaxim at bedtime. I just was wondering what I should expect. Has anyone tried that before? I hope it works I am at my wits end. :-/

Hi Aoife, you may want to start a new thread on the current Medications board that is up higher on the index page. More people will see it there and can respond.
pain free wishes, nani
