I just wanted to post an update.  I having been on his program since Dec. 06 and since March 22, 07 I have not had any migraines!  
 
The program is individualized to each person based on blood tests and medical history.  It is bioidentical hormones and supplements and the dosages are adjusted weekly (sometimes more, sometimes less) based on symptoms and quarterly blood test results.  It is costly but it has been worth every penny and more to me.  I have my life back!
 
Not only are my migraines gone but my menopausal symptoms (hot flashes, low libido, etc) are gone too!
 
I know it sounds hard to believe and a little miraculous.  It is still hard for me to believe myself sometimes.  Dr.Dzugan has a book "The Migraine Cure" which explains the program in clear language.  I absolutely love his book.  It made so much sense to me as I have had hormone problems all my life.  Also Dr. Dzugan's website is called MigraineProgram. 
 
If anyone has any questions about my experience I would be happy to try and answer them.  My email is on here too I think.

I got your email. I can tell you that it has definitely worked for me, but I am the only one that I can speak for! I will send you an email with the answer to your other questions.

I'm looking into this as well. Finally coherent after 2 days of migraine. I am a teacher and doubt I can continue teaching unless I can get these headaches under control.
Jeannemarie, do you have any tips about working with Dr. D's program? Anything you would do differently? Did you get insurance to pay for any of it? What type of doctor did you get to order your blood work? Is there a list on the web somewhere for compounding pharmacies? Did your insurance cover your meds?
I have read everything on his site and anything about him on every other site I could find. Am going to get the book this afternoon (unless another migraine hits me: scool .
 
Thanks for any info you can provide.

Hi Nanci,

With regards to my insurance...they pay for my quarterly blood tests and also for my progesterone and triest after my copay.  They also pay for my local doctor who orders the blood tests and hormones for me.

My local doctor is my regular MD.  She is young and open minded and was willing to let me give this a try after seeing all the research I had done and also knowing my migraine history, how bad I was, and that I'd tried so many things all these years already.

I think if you google compounding pharmacies you will be able to find a bunch.  I use Medaus.  They are in Alabama which is not where I am, but I just call for refills (after mailing them the original scripts) and they send it right out. (I had tried to do bio-identical hormones before getting on Dr. Dzugan's program at one point, with a gynocologist that specialized in them and she recommended Medaus).  I like them because they take my insurance. 

It is good that you are getting the book.   Let me know what you think after you read it.  

The only thing that I would have done differently is start sooner.  I actually knew about Dr. Dzugan about a year before his book came out and was in contact with him and his nurse at LEF.  They were offering to help me then at no cost but I waited and wasted all that time suffering.  And by the time I decided to give it a go he had finished the book and set up the Migraine Program and it cost $!  Worth every penny and more though. 

I'm sorry I can't think of anymore tips but if you have any other questions I will be happy to try and answer them.  By the way my real name is Laurie.  I am not sure why I signed on with my middle name.  It seemed like everyone else used something other than there name so I guess I thought I would to!

Thanks for the info Laurie and for taking the time to answer my questions. I ordered the book through Amazon and it will arrive Friday. I'll let you know what I think.

Almost seems too good to be true. I've been surfing the net and reading other book reviews about bioidentical hormone therapy. Sounds like some people find a doc to do this and tweak levels themselves. I'm tempted but think going with Dr. D. is probably the best way for a busy person who wants someone else to tell them exactly how to change meds, etc. Agree? Are you still paying the $100/mth? How long will you do that you think? Is there a point where they expect that you will hit a maintenance level and be able to just stay on the meds at a certain dosage?

How old are you and how long did you have headaches/migraines? Thanks!

You are quite welcome! I am almost 52 and have had migraines since puberty.  The past 20 years were the worst.

I am still under Dr. Dzugan's care.  I like knowing that he is there for me if I have any problems (for instance, a month ago I went through some stressful family issues making it impossible for me to sleep and he upped the dosages of a couple of my supplements for a few days and it was a big help).  I also like to have him look at my blood test results which he and my local doctor want me to have quarterly.  After my results came back the last time he had me stop taking testosterone altogether.  When starting the program he has patients take high dosages and after their migraine situation is under control then he drops them down to maintenance dosages or some of the supplements may no longer be needed at all.

With regard to trying to find another doctor to tweak the dosage amounts...My experience is this...I tried to do it with a gynocologist that specialized in BHRT and although it worked somewhat for about a month, after that it no longer worked and she was not able to figure out what should be done about it.  She was very sincere but I felt like she was guessing alot and after reading Dr. Dzugan's book I could see that Dr. Dzugan knew what he was doing and I just didn't want to wait anymore.

I, also, got amazing results with Dr. Dzugan's Program. Before finding it, I spent 15+ years suffering with chronic daily migraines. I tried every drug imaginable, and every "holistic" thing I could find, but noting worked. Now, after almost 3 years on the Dzugan Program, I am virtually migraine free. It works!

I see these posts are older, but I am taking a chance that you guys are still following it.

I have signed up for Dr. Dzugan's program after a year of talking to them and trying other things (everything) to shake my chronic daily headaches. I pulled the trigger last week and am waiting to take my first set of labs.

I also tried BHRT locally, but didn't get the micromanagement I think is necessary to make this work.

Here is sit with a god-awful 5 day headache and neck ache, waiting patiently to get my labs done and get started. I have had daily headaches for 2 years and they are only getting worse. I just turned 50.

Those of you that signed up, are you still on the program - did it remain successful for you? Is there anyone out there that it did not work for? I have Googled nine ways to Sunday and can't find any bad reviews.

I have used the Dzugan method and used to volunteer for the group. It is very expensive and isn't anything that a local doctor can't help you with that is familiar with bio identical hormone treatment. My OB's RN helped me through a vitamin and bio identical hormone therapy that helped me leaps and bounds beyond the Dzugan method at a fraction of the cost. I took calls for the group and found that very few people were happy with the results. Futhermore, the group has judgments against them for not repaying investors and the CEO is under SEC investigation. When they needed money, I put up 35k of my own money that has not been paid back even after a judgement was awarded to me. This is not an honorable group of people and their objective is not to help people. My advice, find a local doctor that is familiar with bio identical hormone treatment and has a good reputation. If you are curious about pending lawsuits and judgments, check out the Rip Off Reports online. It breaks my heart that people are still spending thousands of dollars online with this group that should have their license banned.
