After 20 years of battling, trying many medications over the years, Triptans have been good for me for each migraine attack. I have averaged 3 a week for years.
I think Topamax has been available in Australia for a lot shorter time than elsewhere, but I have been taking the drug for one month. On 100mg now.
I have 100% success, have not taken one Zomig (Triptan) and experienced little side effects. I am taking another drug called lexapro for another problem and I don't know if there is any complimentory thing going on there.
So far.... so excellent! as far as the migraines go anyway
In the long term, I will need to keep up with my check ups and blood tests and keep track of things I spose.
