Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 weeks ago):
After taking Celexa (citalopram) for about 4 weeks, I started with jaw pain, tooth pain and head pain but mostly on the left side. It continued and became more severe and started on the right side. I stopped taking the Celexa 5 days ago and still have the neuralgia.
From this study (9 months ago):
Was put on simvastatin for 5 days, when severe pain hit. Was taken off of it immediately. Put on steriods. SED rate elevated. Prednisone helped just a little, but when weaning down, pain got worse. It has been 6 weeks off medication.
