Treatment of trigeminal neuralgia

In 1962, Blom introduced the antiepileptic drug tegretol ( carbamazepine , finlepsin , stazepine ) into the practice of treating trigeminal neuralgia , which opened up real prospects for the successful treatment of this severe suffering. In the Soviet Union, other antiepileptic drugs were successfully used for the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia : trimethine, ethosuximide ( suksilep ), morpholep ,
