Thank you for posting your query.

It is unfortunate that your trigeminal neuralgia has not responded to treatment thus far.

If you have done MRI and MR angiogram of brain, please upload the reports, it would be useful in deciding the best treatment option for you.

Treatment options other than medications include radio-frequency ablation and micro-vascular decompression.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
