Shingles medications questions
Hi, I’m recently diagnosed with Shingles, on my face and scalp of all places. I am on Valtrex, and prescription strength ibuprofen. I also have GERD, so I’m concerned about the ibuprofen irritating that further. If you took Lyrica, or another anti convulsant, how long was it before you felt relief? Would it provide relief from itching, or just pain? I have also asked my doctor these questions and am awaiting a response. I’m just looking for a variety of individual experiences. Thank you.19 replies
