12 years ago I had shingles, the diagnosis was too late for antiviral drug to help, however I have been
on Neurontin for 12 yearsa, it keeps it under control, if I stop taking this drug, I get the horrible pain again, I am sold on Neurontin. But
I would not wish Shingles on my owrst enemy. Take
the shot if available........ I would not go near
anyone with Shingles, for fear of re occurance..
