In brief: Definite treatment

Sometimes Amitriptyline may help.
However, i would strongly recommend to have definite treatment: surgery or radiofrequency ablation.

In brief: It depends

Trigeminal neuralgia is severe debilitating nerve pain.
However, it is episodic and not round the clock. If the pain is all the time in the evening, another diagnosis should be entertained. For short-term management, there are number sleep agents that can be used. These will lose efficacy and can bet detrimental if used on a chronic basis though.
