Botox did not help me. I did the three month and only had 2 weeks of relief each time.
In 2008 I tried Neurontine went up to 1250. That doc, used not combo, just this med. It did nothing for my pain.
Four weeks ago, the Doc at Jefferson Univers in Phila, PA added Neurontine to my combo starting at 600mg, I noticed on my pain calender and myself that the pain was going from 6-8 and 10's down to 5-7's. So last week it as increased to 700mg. Now most of the day I have levels of 3-5 and have had NO 10,s since.
The POINT here is, if your current doctor wants to try a med that you have used before, that did not work. Stay positive and allow the doc to do their job. They are not just guessing. They know different combos of meds do different things. Have faith in the good Neuros!
Are you on a migraine diet? Look it up, it is on most migraine sites. Basically a whole for diet with out food dyes and artificial sweetners.
Most people have a noticable change in pain level.
Also, if you are on media alot, phone, pad, etc. cut your time in half.
