Treatment of trigeminal neuralgia

The primary aim of treatment is to alleviate pain. Anti-convulsant medications such as Carbamazepine or skeletal muscle relaxants such as Baclofen may be prescribed to reduce pain. Invasive therapies such as a nerve blocks or a nerve decompression technique may also be used for pain relief. In case trigeminal neuralgia results from some artery compression, then the expertise of a neurosurgeon may be required to surgically decompress the nerve root. Almost all affected individuals find relief with one or the other treatment modality.
