In the July/August 2007 issue of Neurology Now, Dr. Charles E. Argoff answered the question, “Are there drugs to control the unbearable pain of trigeminal neuralgia?” His answers were fine, but most of us TN patients are well aware of all the drugs on the market, and unfortunately most don't work. I've tried every drug, including a few at the VA that Dr. Argoff didn't mention, and all to no avail.

Trigeminal neuralgia patients may not be aware that surgery is available if drugs don't work. I found out about the surgery from a nonprofit group called the Trigeminal Neuralgia Association. Patients can write or call them to receive a huge packet of information and a bi-monthly newsletter.
