My 16 year old daughter just got out of the hospital Saturday after a three day round of IV DHE treatment for migraine headaches. It seemed to help her migraine but here we are three days later and she seems to be suffering from side effects. Since she left hospital she has been kind of out of it. She is so tired and cant function well. She states she just feels out of it. Like she can't think straight and just wants to sleep. She typically is tied to her cell phone but she doesnt even want to pick it up. Can't get enough sleep and she says she is scared because she doesn't feel right. Has anyone had this happen to them? The Nerologist said if she doesn't get better that take her to her pcp because it shouldn't be the dhe and all her blood work was good. It has to be the dhe or something in her system. Any advice would be appreciated.....

I too underwent a round of DHE treatment over the course of 3 days in a local hospital. The DHE itself made me feel just awful while I was in the hospital, with nausea and the shakes after each injection. 2 days after being released from the hospital I was back in the emergency room with one of my worst migraines to date (which is saying something!). I'm not sure if I can blame the DHE fully, as there were other triggers and variables at play, but I certainly did not enjoy the DHE one bit...
