Hi, Im new to the migraine forum. I am 27 years old and have had migraines for almost a year now. They seem to come and go, but I have been experiencing really bad ones for about the past month. I was taking darvocet on a regular basis about 4 months ago and finally stopped taking it because all I did when I got home from work was go to bed and I am a single mom of a 7 year old girl. I now average taking 6 Excedrin migraine a day. The bottle says to only take 2 in a 24 hour period. I was taking Topamax but stopped taking it just because I thought it wasnt helping as much. I take Zoloft (100 mg a day) for about 4 years now. I started having panic attacks in 2003 but has resolved them with the zoloft.
I am basically getting to the point where I am just so exhausted of my head hurting all the time that all I can do is just cry.
If anyone has any suggestions on what I might beable to do to help these go away I would be so grateful.
Also, I havent really been able to pin point any triggers other than my period or a weather change.
Thank you so much for reading and any input you might beable to give me, Tawni
