I just got put on relpax for my severe daily chronic migraines along with topamax  been on for years depakote for seizures and headaches  but the relpax good as is it seems to cause severe pain down my arms within a half hour of taking it. is this normal? i also have a benign bone mass thats been slowly growing off and on for about two years. besides this i have a form of secondary or psudo parkonsnosisms due to high doeses of depakote.
 
 my nuro/pain /headache speacialist told me to alternate with meds like ibuprofen or exerdrin migraine with the relpax so i have been.  the relpax works greats for the headache it just causes that one bizzar symptom for me. opions?

Yes, parathesia is a fairly common side effect of the triptan medications. As with other side effects, different people experience them to different extents. Typically the severity of the side effects will decrease with repeated use. If the pain persists long after you've taken Relpax, or presents when you have not taken the medication at all, be sure to speak to a doctor.
