... it takes to work. I would like to have one of my practitioners write for injectables, but I haven't found the right way to ask. My go-to is Ubrelvy 50mg and then 50mg more if needed an hour later. I also take Benadryl 50mg & promethazine 50mg. All of that seems to work, but I am not worth anything the rest of the day after all of the antihistamines. Nausea is the number-one thing with my headaches and it is intolerable (hence the 50mg of promethazine). I have tried Zofran, but it does nothing for me. When I go to the Urgent Care, I get Toradol 60mg/promethazine 25mg/Benadryl 25mg, all separate injections. That works like a charm, but I save the Urgent Care for when I run out of Ubrelvy. Thanks in advance for your responses
- I assume that you know about Maxalt or Sumatriptan.
- An ointment (by prescription) that are made up by specialty pharmacies often helps to not get a migraine that is developing. The ingredients of this anti-inflammation gel are: Amitrityline-2%, Ketoprofen – 10%, Gabapentin – 3%, Lidocaine – 2% and Transdermal Gel – 60 g.
- Often caffeine can really help.
You don't say how often you get bad migraines.
- On an ongoing basis, what has really helped me is Aimovig, but it is expensive, even with insurance. It doesn't help everyone.
- Before AImovig, acupuncture helped me more than Botox. But you have to find a good acupuncturist.
I have had migraines since age 15 & I am now 59. I have used everything on the market from 1979 - PRESENT. I currently take TOPIRAMATE 100mg tab x2 @ BEDTIME. I have been on this from my neurologist for my migraines. I was getting over 16 a month and this has stopped them for about 12YRS now. Occasionally I have a breakthru migraine & I use Sumatriptan 50mg for them. I get an AURA so I can tell when they are coming so I can take the medication. This has been the medication that has worked the best for me as it keeps them away & I have a way to treat them if I need to. I was in the USAF as an EMT & an LPN most of my working career. So unless its going to work, less or no side effects I won't take it. GOOD LUCK in your search for treatment ❤❤❤❤❤
