do you know whether it's hormonal? Sometimes birth control pills can help keep your hormones balanced, if you can find the right one for you - that can eliminate a lot of migraines. I know for some people this isn't an option. I hit a point where I was trying everything and still struggling, since I struggle with depression, I was
open to an antidepressant. For me, pristiq eliminated my migraines almost entirely. I also did well on ponstel, which is an NSAID, but unfortunately I have IBD and I can't take NSAIDs. I would 100% take the antidepressant again, but it also had some side effects. Some positive impact too, for me anyway, I was much less bothered by negative thoughts. I think a good headache specialist is helpful. A month wait is a long time... None of the tripthans were a slam dunk for me sadly. Zomig was better than maxalt but everyone is individual.
