Thank you for asking HCM
I have gone through your query.The drugs you are using now are for hypertension and for protecting heart.Eriel AM is telmisartan which is a angiotensin receptor blocker and Amlodipine calcium channel blocker.Amifru is amiloride and furosemide which are diuretics.All these are for hypertension and for cardiac protection.For trigeminal neuralgia the usual drugs used are carbamazepine,lamotrigine,baclofen or gabapentine which are not there in this.It can be a recurrent or chronic condition.But can attain remission with proper therapy.Hope this may help you.
Let me know if you have any further query.
