Other choices: Neurontin, lyrica, (pregabalin) cymbalta, gralise, baclofen, perhaps topamax or lamotrigine. Consider a relatively non-invasive needle directed balloon foramenal decompression by a neurosurgeon.

Treat the cause: If you are not tolerating the medication and have ongoing pain you need to have the nerve decompressed by a neurosurgeon.
