Facial Pain (Trigeminal Neuralgia) - Treatments

Trigeminal neuralgia secondary to blood vessel compression of the trigeminal nerve can be treated successfully with a neurosurgical procedure called microvascular decompression. 

Other non-surgical causes of trigeminal neuralgia may respond to medical management with medications such as carbamazepine (Tegretol), phenytoin (Dilantin) or other medications for nerve pain. However, when unacceptable long-term side effects or inadequate pain relief happens, other invasive interventions may be indicated. Such interventional procedures include glycerol injection and radiofrequency lesioning. Your pain specialist will be able to discuss and advise you on the various options for treatment.
