Conventional Treatment for Trigeminal Neuralgia

Drug-based therapy:

The conventional treatment for Trigeminal Neuralgia largely comprises of the use of anticonvulsive medication, such as Carbamazepine ((Tegretol®, Mezetol), Phenytoin (Dilantin®), which helps many patients but not all. This is the first line of treatment. However, Carbamazepine has several adverse effects. It needs to be taken for a very long period (almost lifelong for many) and it can have many side effects. Please click here to check the side effects of Carbamazepine.

Other medicines include Gabapentin (Neurontin®), Baclofen (Lioresal®).

Surgical treatment:

  • Microvascular decompression (MVD)
  • Gamma Knife (high-intensity, highly focused radiation) may help for a variable amount of time.
  • RFTC (Radiofrequency thermocoagulation): Invasive procedure, found effective in most cases but there is a risk of lasting numbness of face. The pain tends to recur after some months or years, in most cases.
