i have had chronic migraines for years. Spent the past 4 years in bed suffering. Been to every neurologist available even 2 migraine specialist. Had injections in the back of head and at the base of the neck where nerves that are affected are. Botox and every medication available. So many Drs. end up telling you there is nothing else they can do for you and drop me. Finally I found a Certified Nurse Praticioner that specliazes in Psychology. he was willing to work with me till we found a regimentof medications that would work for me. He has been the only one that has done this. I am taking Valium 5mg twice a day, amitriptyline 50 mg one before bed and neorotin 600 mg twice a day and i have had only 2-3 migraines in 4 months. it did take some trial and error to come up with what would work for me. But to find someone that cares enough about your condition is very hard. It is so nice to have my life back. I can now plan things in advance and not have to worry about canceling because I have a migraine. If any one would like to talk to me about this I would gladly like to help. There is so many of us out there. My email address is gardner50@cableone.net
