Hi all, I am a chronic migrainer. I have been on State disability for 11 months now. I have 1 month to become employed or I will have no paycheck whatsoever. I am really anxious and scared about going back to full-time corporate employment while suffering near daily migraines. I have taken 3 different class preventatives which did not work. I take Immitrex to abort the migraine. It can take up to 4 hours to go away and usually will come back.
My question is for those of you who graduated from triptans to narcotics.
1) Does it abort the pain faster?
2) Are the side effects such that you could continue working or do they knock you out?
3) How did you get to this point with your doctor?
Your replies will be much appreciated.
DX: chronic migraine, cervical degeneration, depression/anxiety
RX: Wellbutrin, Lexapro, Soma, Immitrex
