Try Lyrica (pregabalin).: There are other medications & modalities that your neurologist can try.

Possibly Tegretol or Troleptal are better choices for Trigeminal Neuralgia. They need to be prescribe at high doses. Be patient !

Trileptal is a derivative of Tegretol which can be effective for Trigeminal Neuralgia. It is better tolerated than Tegretol.

Especially some over the counter medications , even Vicks that is rubbed on and inhaled or the kind you stick up your nosezantac otc is another one if you use that for heartburn . Most oral decongestants 2.
