... and is wondering if the treatment is effective. Can anyone offer advice?
DHE 45 - My son (he's in his 30's) is getting ready to have his first DHE treatment. He's anxious?
Added 1 May 2013:
Don't know what else to say. He's been sick with headaches for almost a year. Will go into hospital for this drug treatment. Dihydoertamine. It's new to us.
I have tried just about everything else but that. Has your son tried various daily preventative migraine meds, tried Botox at least several times with higher doses, tried nerve block and trigger point injections, tried off-label Namenda, tried Butrans patches which give low levels of opiates? All of the above have helped me without any hospitalizations. And I still suffer some with migraines, but not one of my doctors has suggested DHE. That includes 3 neurologists who have Board Certifications in pain management, and a Headache specialist all at one of the top rated major universities. However none of the preventative migraine meds helped me, but an herbal one did. But those that aren't helped by the meds usually have great results from Botox. Post me back if you want more info.
