Question About Neurontin

Posted by Sarah (Kingman, AZ) on 11/30/2006

I've used Calendula Ointment, Aveeno for chicken pox Rash, aloe Jell, acv, made me burn more. The Aveeno cream seems to work the best for a while. I have had the blisters left side of my back, around the the waist and under the left breast and between the breasts-very painfull, a burning pain. I took Zovirax,800mg, five pills a day for ten days, supposed to kill the virus. Has anyone tried Neurontin? This medicine is used to treat seizures associated with epilepsy, but also used in adults to treat nerve pain following herpes zoster infection and other conditions.I am thinking of asking for a prescription. Would like to know if anyone has tried this. The burning pain I have right now radiates through my back, and across my chest. I am a 79 year old woman, just lost my husband four months ago, I cannot deal with this pain much longer.

In answer to Sarah from Kingman, AZ. My doctor prescribed Neurontin for my shingles. I take 100mg started 1 tablet 3 times a day for a week, then 2 tablets 3 times a day for a week, then 3 tablets 3 times a day. I had relief from the pain & itching in a week. I have taken this for 2 weeks & 2 days and the itching has almost disappeared. I still have some itching on my arms and face around my eyes. I am going to try the apple cider vinegar on my face and arms.

Dear Sarah: The treatment that I am using for topical application of herpes have been unusually successful. In one case she followed instructions only halfway as the condition was so serious... I told her to do it for 12 hours, but she did 6 hours. A complete remission of the condition ocurred and it never came back. If you want the cure, here are the procedures, after a lot of trial and error. As usual, the biggest problem about this treatment is NOT finding a cure, it was getting the supplies.

1. 5% zinc chloride 5% magnesium chloride solution. Apply every 15 minutes for about 6 hours.

2. Tea tree oil lavender oil geranium oil (1:1:1) Apply every 15 minutes for about 6 hours. You can add rosemary oil if you want and replace with any other oils if you can't find it.

3. 2% copper chloride solution. Apply every 30 minutes for about 6 hours.

The herpes zoster should go away in 24 hours and there will be a dry scab. It should not come back. Make sure you launder the clothes in bleach to prevent reinfection.

As an added kill against further reinfection, 25 mg of zinc acetate/citrate/gluconate every day for about a week. Then do it only weekly for a couple of more week then no more.

Be sure to avoid all sweets and white flour made food during this treatment the body will heal quicker and you will get other added bonus on health also. Absolutely no sweet drinks, coffee or tea. However, drinking water with 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt certainly did help reduce the said fungus condition also. Ted
