Two things - first of all, my father-in-law has suffered from shingles on several occassions due to a suppressed immune system from Luekemia. He always took neurontin and said it worked very quickly to get rid of the shingles and that the faster he got on it the less intense they became.
This past January, my headache doctor put me on neurontin to treat my CH (nothing had really worked or helped for 10 years). I skipped my spring cycle completely, and am 8 weeks in to a cycle right now, and it definitely seems less intense.
If the nuerontin works on your CH like it has for mine, then it might solve both of your problems with one drug. And, my doctor says that it is not addictive and the only possible side affect is nausea when you first start on it (I had not problems).
