Believe it or not, it's my gastroenterologist that prescribes all my meds, even for pain. I actually wish I had a neurologist so I could figure these migraines out. 2 Tramadol helped alot (doing much better since my first post). Would have taken a Firoicet but it drugs me up alot more than Tramadol, and I'm watching my 1 and 3 year olds, so had to pass on that.
Who prescribes your meds? Tramadol is pretty cheap and should be relatively easy to get a script for from your doc (even family physician should be able to prescribe that for you). Fioricet on the other hand might be a bit difficult to obtain. Worth asking for though, does the job no doubt!
