Thanks for your reply! Bummer!---I just looked up info about Zonegran and it's in the same family as Sulfa drugs, and I'm allergic to Sulfa. I'm meeting with my neurologist tomorrow, so am anxious to see what meds (if any) he recommends. Glad to hear there are some new abortive meds on the horizon. When I have a super bad migraine that I can't get rid of with other abortives, I take Relpax. It works, but I don't like the side effects.
Thanks also for your input. I also take Fioricet, which generally works pretty well. It gets rid of my migraine for that particular day, but then the migraine sometimes returns several days in a row. That's when I panic, because I know I can't take the Fioricet indefinitely, or I'll return to that ever-dreaded hell of rebounding.
