There is no known cure for BMS. We can however, reduce some, if not most of your discomfort using a
variety of medications, many of which are used to treat anxiety, depression, and other neurologic disorders.
The medications help to reduce the activity of nerve fibers. At low doses (not normally used for treating
anxiety or depression), such medications have been extremely effective in treating BMS. Since many patients
also have difficulty sleeping and experience anxiety, these medications may help you to sleep and rest better,
and feel less anxious.
One of the medications that you may be prescribed includes clonazepam (Klonopin), which is a relative
of valium. This medication has a potential to cause dependency, so please make sure you take it in strict
accordance with the way it is prescribed. If you have a substance dependence problem, please let your doctor
know since there are other effective medications that do not have the potential to cause dependence. These
include amitriptyline or nortriptyline and gabapentin (Neurontin). You may experience some drowsiness when
you start taking these medications; however this usually goes away within 1-2 weeks. Furthermore, your
prescription will be taken at night just before bedtime to minimize this side effect. Please do not drink alcohol
or drive after taking your medications.Another medication that may help you is capsaicin, an ingredient in hot chili peppers and Tabasco
sauce, and is the active ingredient in a drug called Zostrix. Capsaicin has been scientifically proven to help
reduce certain kinds of pain. You can try this to see if it will work. Dissolve 5-6 drops of Tabasco sauce in 1
teaspoon of water and rinse your mouth with it four times a day. The initial feeling is one of burning but within
a few minutes, some patients report that the overall burning is much reduced.
Non-pharmacologic approaches to management, which may be used alone or in addition to the above
medications, include stress management/reduction, meditation, yoga, exercise, and psychotherapy. If stress,
anxiety and/or depression are contributing to your BMS, regular use of these techniques or regular counseling
may help to reduce your symptoms and keep your drug dosages low. With any therapy for BMS, it may take
several weeks or even months before maximum benefits are achieved.
