Dec 6, 2017 · Burning Mouth Syndrome. I have it very severe. in Skin Health

Yes!! Now that I think. I also suffer from anxiety and depression. I have been on medication most of my life. I am very very lucky though. My husband is a physician so most medications are easy access to me. Just a yearly visit to my GP and I am set. So maybe the cure is antidepressants AND Lyrica. 150 mg of Bupropion SR (Welbutrim) plus 100 mg Trazodone and 10mg of amitryptoline (which lengthens the effect of the Trazodone) knock me out at night and I hate the groggy feeling I get in the morning. But all my anxiety and dysphoria are gone. I would definitely would ask your doctor if you can try this. Good luck!

I forgot to mention in my last post that I also take a cocktail of antidepressants along with the gabapentin. A little Wellbutrim, a little Trazodone and 10mg of amitrytaline before bed. That might be helping. But I don’t know why Lyrica alone wouldn’t help all of you? If you have had all the tests and ruled out herpes, infections and cancer it should be the cure. Yes, my BMS gets worse if I’m under stress. So psychotherapy might help lessen the symptoms. But upping the Gabapentin to a max of 900mg per day does the trick for me. Lyrica is the more expensive and the more potent version of Gabapentin. I wish I could afford it because it does a better job.

I don’t know where you heard that or what tests were done. I have had BMS for 8 years. Originally I had every test in the book. My husband is a surgeon so I got the most thorough work up available to man. They finally ruled everything out. Also, I am one of those freaks that has a natural immunity to viruses. I have never even had a cold sore.
What clued them into the cure was the fact I had mild polymyasia and Raynaud’s disease. Both neurological disorders. So I started taking Lyrica and OH JOY. Problem solved. Now I am down to 300mg of Gabapentin a day and have never felt better.
