Anything else tried other than Baclofen?
Hemifacial spasm is considered due to irritation of the Facial nerve (the cranial nerve that supplies the muscles in the face).
Since you have not mentioned other treatments so I assume nothing else was tried other than Baclofen. Accordingly I will make the following recommendations.
A) It is initially treated with oral medications which include;
Baclofen (you have already tried)
You have already tried Baclofen without much help, so you may consider one of the other meds mentioned above.
B) If none of the above meds help then the next treatment option is Botox Injection – which is very effective in treating this condition
C) If Botox fails then certain surgical treatment options like Microvascular Decompression etc is tried – which is also very effective for treating this condition.
