HELLO fellow sufferers,
I too get migraines.... and last week i had
zig zag lights .twice in one week and blurred vision.
and major head pain/nausea
anyways....my Family Dr. has me taking
Maxerin...(which is an antinauseant) she says can be used for migraines...
I take it with Demerol....the 2 together seem to reduce the pain and nausea.
I took fiorinal after a spinal tap in the 80's....and it does cause rebound headaches....i took myself off of it.
Any narcotic has the potential for addiction or abuse.
I'm on alot of narcotics for my Fibromyalgia, IBS, Migraines.....and I know I can get withdrawal symptoms if i let my drug level get too low. (my GP watches me closely...I see her every 2nd week)
The other downside to narcotics is....constipation....have to keep a close eye on that.
hope this was of help
