    I would agree with TMAZ. I have a burning sensation in the pelvic area. Very strong. Started on low doses and increased to 100mg. My mind was foggy and my temperment changed. I quit using them.

    I spent two pretty horrible weeks on Topamax because the side effects were intolerable [memory loss, inability to focus, loss of appetite, nausea, diarrhea, nervousness, trouble sleeping, depression, blurred vision]. I now list it in my drug allergies profile.

    I'm getting good relief from central pain, including the burning, through a combination of methadone, amitriptyline, and gabapentin.
    It is easier to find men who will volunteer to die, than to find those who are willing to endure pain with patience.

    I am getting good relief from burning pelvic pain with 20mgs. of amitriptyline. Looking at the research on this med I found that there may be a window of effectiveness when used for pain in some people. If the dosage is too low or too high it does not work. They recommend starting at the lowest dose (10mgs.) and working upward until effectiveness is optimal or a reaching the maximum dosage without results. It has been suggested that some people are started on too high a dosage and overshooting the window. Thus, they conclude that it does not work when it might at a lower dose.
