I hope that by now your migraine has gone away! I've tried everything under the sun and I'm still dealing with mine. Doesn't help that my boyfriend is playin rough with the dog and making him bark... loud. Anyway, I've never tried the steroids but after one long period of migraines, I think it was 5 days, and many different things, they tried a shot of Torradol. I've had it before but it finally did the trick.
First day I took the (oral) Imitrex
Same thing second day
Skipped because of fear maybe I was giving a rebound the fourth day
Fifth day went to hospital and had two doses of an intraveinous drug (didn't work that time)
And finally (same day) they gave the shot of Torradol and prescribed Loratab and sent me on my merry drugged out way home to sleep it off.
Luckily that worked. I'm not quite sure what kind of drug Torradol is but you could look it up, but its a shot given in your buttocks. Yay. I'm sure sometimes many different things can work, but that one time that is what worked. Right now I'm dealing with what I'm going to write off as a hormonally driven migraine since I started my Topamax a week ago and hadn't had one since... until yesterday.
So I ended up taking two doses of Imitrex yesterday with the worst of the migraine so far but they didn't work. Took a Loratab to put me to sleep and MAYBE (crossed my fingers) take it away last night. Nope. Woke up this morning with it lighter, just not gone. So now its going on two days with meds. HOPING I don't have to go to the doc tomorrow. Definitely tired of it.
Let me know what you ended up doing seechell... I think we're all hoping to find something. Imitrex is just not doing it for me. And as I'm not scared of needles, I'm not fond of getting 3-5 shots a month. :(
Hope you're doing better!
