Do you know what they gave you in your IV? Unfortunately a certain number of people end up with a constant migraine that nothing will break and we don't know why, but I would guess there are plenty of other meds they could give you by IV that haven't been tried yet. This article might be a helpful reference:


Hope this helps.

Ohh baby, I'm so sorry to hear you're so sick at a young age! In regards to your migraines-are you on birth control? What time of the month did this sttart in regards to your menses? Anti-inflammatorie are supposed to help hold hormonal migraines at bay during that time frame. I didn't recognize all of thr drug names,have you tried a muscle relaxer? Also, my neuro started me on a herbal that helped for a littke bit(my body chemistry changes frequently, I have fibromyalgia)-but it did help for 3 months...butterbur, 75mg, twice a day-it relaxes the muscles/blood vessels of the brain. It's wortha try, and you can take it with your other meds too. I really hope this finds you feeling better! Have theu done a mri of your head and neck? I know you're young, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't evualate further. Take care!! Amy

Hi there, Smooshed.
From all that you have said, it would appear that you have what may feel like the same migraine ongoing, when in fact, like myself, the number of Back-to-Back migraines just tends to feel like one big long continual pain lasting seemably forever. I do not recognize any of the drugs you mention and as to what is in the IV I also have no knowledge. However, coming from a 61-year-young woman who has been afflicted with Chronic Migraine Disease (the variety pack) since the age of 12 (over 49 years now), and realizing that although over 90% of the pain medications ever developed tend to be acetaminophen-based (which does not work on my system), it was the old Frosst 222's (acetylsalicylic acid and caffeine and codeine) that took the edge off of the pain back then, for the mild and moderate ones, and the Frosst 282's (with double the codeine) that worked for the severe ones. No other product was ever used by me and to date, to deal with CMD, which includes daily vertigo, nausea, disorientation, and a number of variables, I have a 145-pound female black Newfoundland dog who is my Assistance/Guide/Service dog and 24/7 companion. She senses the migraines that do NOT give me any warning and hugs my legs to warn me. When the Ocular Migraines his with the intense pain and vision blackout, she senses the attack and goes into "auto-pilot" to pull me to safety. BUBBLES is my Guardian Angel - my saving grace through CMD, OMS, DDD, MG and cataracts. She is my balance, my vision, my focus, and my mentor.
