I had shingles which left me with severe nerve pains. The doctor kept on prescribing epletin for the past five months. Will it eventually help on completely getting rid of the pain?

If it hasn't done so after 5 months, there's not much of a chance that it's going to and you should talk to your doctor about trying something else.

Most medications reach their full effectiveness in the body after just 4 to 6 weeks and you are long past that time period.

Is there anything else I can help with?
