OBJECTIVE: To evaluate individualized classical homeopathy in the treatment of idiopathic trigeminal neuralgia (ITN) METHOD: 15 patients with physician-confirmed trigeminal neuralgia were treated with homeopathy. Patients received individualized homeopathic medicines as oral liquid 30C once per month and were followed-up at the end of first, second, third and fourth month. Visual analogue scale (VAS) was used for the evaluation of pain intensity and descriptive criteria were used for evaluation of attack frequency. RESULT: All 15 patients completed treatment. The results for both the reduction of pain intensity and attack frequency were statistically significant (P<0.001) during the four-month evaluation. We observed overall reductions of more than 60% in pain intensity using homeopathic treatment. CONCLUSION: The results suggest that homeopathic treatment is an effective and safe method in the treatment of ITN.
