anyone else here suffering with them as well?? How long did it take you to get a diagnosis and are the meds they gave you working?? How about side effects? I took a Maxalt last night and OMG either I am a light weight or they are VERY strong lol. I can say I sure did sleep good last night, sadly though if that is the effect they have I can't take it during the day while I have my kids here.

Perhaps you can take 1/2 of one. Check with the Dr. aren't they the ones that dissolve under the tongue. I think I tried them once.

It did help my migrane pain. I also suffer from Hemiplegic Migrane. Good luck. It is hard to find something that you can take when you still have to be rsponsible for your little ones. Is there any chance that you can get a mothers helper for the summer. I used to do that. I would get a niece to come help out in the afternoons so I could get some afternoon rest, then I would still be around in the afternoon. On the weekend I would take her out to a movie or shopping or just do something special with her and one of her friends. It worked well for me.

These ones do not dissolve under the tounge, and I am sure I could only take half. The mothers helper is a good idea and I will look into that. On saturday my kids will be with grandma for a week so at least I can catch up on some rest then. Glad to hear the meds to work, 3 months of every day headahces have not been much fun.
