what helped me most, even though I still get migraines, is getting off so many meds. I was on a list full, felt crazy, sleepy all the time, and they didn't work so I just quit them, slowly.
I would suggest Topamax if you can handle the side effect, or not get them. It worked great but I had bad cognitive effects.
I now only take 3 meds, depression related mostly, and have fentanly suckers for the kickers that won't go away. I get 30 for 3 months, so I can use one every 3 days, which is about
how many h/a I get.
DX-Migraines:Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome: IBS:Ulcers:Depression/Anxiety:Buldging Disc:Joint pain (I'm only 22!!)
Surgeries- two jaw surgeries, appendectomy, numerous lap. surgeries, ovarian cyst removals
Meds: ProzAC 40mg, Klonopin 1mg BID , Ambien 10mg
PRN- Imitrex INJ, Pherergan, Actiq 600mcg(fentanyl suckers) for migraine breakthrough pain
May God give you a reason to smile today, an extra reason to laugh, and bring joy to your soul.
