I have been dealing with minimal TTS based on EMG test and tenosynovitis of FHL based on MRI for 8 months and have been taking LEXAPRO a Anti depressant to deal with the chronic pain associated with this. I also have been offered Neurontin as to see if this is more nerve or tendon related. Are you aware of the safety of these two medicines taken together?

Hmm. I will have to look that one up when I get back to the office. I find the concept of using Neurontin as a 'test' to see how much is nerve and how much as tendon a good idea. Neurontin does cause drowsiness and takes some getting used to. It would be my hope that you do not have to use it on a long term basis.
