The intensity of the pain can be physically or mentally incapacitating that’s why it is known as ‘suicidal disease’ as large proportion of subjects commit suicide to get rid of this condition.

Treatment options include medicines-Anticonvulsant medicines, tricyclic antidepressants such as amitriptyline, surgery and complementary approaches. Several neurosurgical procedures are available to treat TN. Usually complementary approaches are used in combination with drug treatment, which includes low impact exercise, yoga, creative visualization, aroma therapy, or meditation.
