Have you tried Topamax for migraines? It doesn't work for everyone but I was having one a month that would take me out for 2-3 days. On Topamax that was reduced to 0. I have been off it now for about 9 months and will have the occasional migraine. I am told they will get further and further apart as I enter menopause.
A wonderful migraine medicine which is a generic brand is called Mylan-Amotriptan. It is in either 6.5 mg or 12.5 mg. I take 12.5 mg. This is a lot less expensive than the brand "Axert". I have tried every migraine medicine out there and I have had them since I was in my teens. I am 51 now. It is taking and it can work anywhere between 20 minutes to 2 hours. If the migraine is still there a second dose can be taken after 2 hours. You cannot take more than 2 doses in 24 hours. Avoid cheese, chocolate, caffeine, STRESS, deli meats. I found that these can trigger a migraine. I do not experience fatigue from these, but if a 2nd dose is taken, lying down is not a bad idea. I hope this helps.
