Nervous Tic -Treatment

There are two treatment approaches.

The first one is pharmacological, whose main goal is to reduce the pain associated with the condition. For this purpose the drug of choice is Carbamzepine. This is a drug used to treat epilepsy, but is extremely effective in trigeminal neuralgia . Depending on the severity of the symptoms skeletal muscle relaxants are also given.

The second approach to treat trigeminal neuralgia is surgical. This approach has been receiving good reports in recent years. The gamma knife radiation has been quite successful in treating the condition
