Hi Leigh Ann, I've been following your story -- so sorry that you are going through this with the doctors. I used to take xanax occasionally - never excessively - even LESS than prescribed but suddenly the PCP who took over for my old PCP said that he wouldn't prescribe the xanax and to go to the psychiatrist. She said quote "I don't prescribe benzos." I had to get through a pretty rough time as a result. Anyway, narcotics do not help my migraines. I can take vicodin and it would do NOTHING. I guess everybodys chemistry is different but I do need to talk to the neuro about
this med cocktail for depression and migraine. I'm so overwhelmed right now looking for a job, I've had migraines and bac neck pain -- I'm as tense as a flag pole and I don't have time to go to the doc. For now, I'm trying to take as little as possible. I might need to try another type of narcotic but that has a whole different set of problems. Thanks for your input. Take care.
DX: chronic migraine, cervical degeneration, depression/anxiety
RX: Wellbutrin, Lexapro, Soma, Immitrex
