There are tons of medications. Like I told you in your other post, get a neurologist and also ANA testing :)

Hi there Letgo Im not sure if you have read what I posted yesterday about castor oil. Castor is good for lots of thing google it here are 2 web pages www.kristinasoil.com
www.castoroilhome.com/health-benefits-of-castor-oil Sorry I don't now any thing about meds PLEASE read all you can on castor oil first if you wont to try it .ALL THE BEST

One other thing are you drinking lots of good flitted water about 2.2Lts for a women & 3Lts for a man. I have a lot of other things I could say that might help but as Im new to this sit I don't wont to up set any one by saying the wrong thing.
Do as to others as you would want done to you and you should live a long and happy life.

Hi Letgo Your welcome hope this helps you like it has helped me castor oil should work on most headaches,If you need any more info just let me know. Look up what honey & lemons can help you with to. But please read my post first as women need to know the side affects of castor oil first.
Sick of seeing meds fix's won thing and bugger some ells. Google the effects of every thing and read every thing you can, Mother nature gave us all we need ( ALL MOST ) she might not be easer way or the quickest. Start be drinking more flitted water and google Dehydration as 98% of us are. Do as to others as you would want done to you and you should live a long and happy life.

If any one is going to try castor oil you need to leave it on for as long as you can I left it on for 18 hours ALL THE BEST

LetGo:

I have been suffering from Migraines for over 4 years now. I have tried Topomax, Zonegran, and Elavil (amitriptyline). I have found that the Elavil has been working better for me at a lower dosage than the other medications. On Topamax, I was up to 200 mg, Zonegran 150 mg, Elavil 50 mg.  I am not as tired and "out there" as I was on the Topamax and Zonegran. I sleep much better and wake more refreshed without headaches.  I do have the occasional headache which I treat with a Fioricet pill as I need it.

Another thing that my neurologist suggested is Migrelief.  It is B-2, magnesium, and feverfew in one capsule.  It does help in conjunction with the Elavil.  It also allows me to take the Fioricet less frequently.
