I have just read your posts and have a couple of thoughts you might discuss with your doctor:
1.) How about a beta blocker for your blood pressure? My neurologist suggested a beta blocker for my migraines and it also helped my blood pressure. Beta blockers increase the amount of oxygen in your blood which for me decreases the throbbing.
2.) You mentioned your headache med is cafeine, codeine and acetominophen, which I know to be generic Tylenol 3s. These are really bad for causing rebound headaches. As Ann mentioned, a triptan medication might help better. Zomig and Imitrex have nasal sprays that bypass your stomach. Zomig also has one that melts in your mouth and I find that works better than those that digest in your stomach.
Sorry, ttwarior, I didn't know verapamil was a blocker. Hopefully that works. Did the chiropractor work at all?
My chiropractor helps but he definitely isn't the end all be all of my migraines.
