We had a rough night. I had over 30 episodes/attacks yesterday. They started out mild if you can call them mild. But continued getting stronger 5min apart. With me ending up in the ER. My husband gave the Dr an update on my Hx. Labs where drawn checking my liver function. After cocktail failed. Gave me benadryl via IV first before giving me Dilantin cause they knew I had reaction to it but just a rash. Nothing respitory or cardiac. They did an EKG & put me on a heart monitor as I was receiving the dilantin to get my TN under control.
Finally things where stable enough for me to go home. Dr told us that if I had dilantin at home dont to take it. It can cause me liver impairment! Labs came back showing slight elevation in my liver function🤦
No worries I have been taken off Dilantin!
Now I've been put on a new medication called Oxcarbazepine (Trileptal)🤞
Also assuring us it won't harm my liver.
I have slept the day away and probably not making sense. I'm just up to try to eat, take my meds, and go back to sleep😴First almost pain free day in 2 months. It could just be all the drugs or cause I've been sleeping but whatever it is I'll take it!!! Good Night😴😴😴 #trigeminalneuralgiawarrior #trigeminalneuralgia
