I was 16 unfortunately I just dealt with them as best I could with excedrin, i'm 27 now and they seem to have gotten 100 times worse, I just recently went to the neurologist and she prescribed 100mg of topomax a day as a preventative although I don't feel it's working.I've also tried relpax which did nothing for me and now she just recently prescribed me rizatriptan a generic dissolving maxalt-MLT, and although it calmed it slightly I still am dealing with the headache all day. Is there anything out there that will take away the migraine and headache completely? Everyday I wake up with headaches and everynight I'm going to bed with a headache. I'm extremely lucky if I can go 1 day a month with no severe headache that turns into a migraine, I'm a mother of 2 and with these migraines I have to push through just to make sure I can do homework with my 5 year old or play with my 3 yr old during the day. And it's always on the left side of my head. Is there anything I can suggest to my neuro that helped anyone else extremely well? I really appreciate it. Thank you!
Girl I hear ya. I've also had migraines all my. Its just trial and error with medicines. Tell your neurologist exactly what you've said here. Never be afraid to tell your doctor what you feeling and how you feel. Good luck to you and I really hope you find a solution to your problem. I know how debilitating migraines can be. Pepper
Sleepy13; Pepper is so right, I have suffered with migraines as long as I can remember, The Maxalt is to be taken at the start of a migraine but when you wake up with a headaches or migraine its very hard to keep them under control.What you should do is tell the doctor as Pepper said and if you hesitate or worry and don't tell the doctor they can't tell how to help you.What I have been taking for years and now have very few headaches or Migraines is the generic Inderal la 80mg take one every day for migraine prevention and I get to where I might have one headache a month.I would see the doctor and tell them what is going on.
I sometimes also have problems telling the doctor so I now write my symptoms down or my questions and just hand the note to the doctor when they come in the room this way I don't forget to ask and also if I just back out of asking.There is an answer for you too its just that it takes several different medications to find the one or ones that work for you.these are not doing it for you and you have to let the doctor know that.You can do this and have life be normal for you.Just takes some time to find out what it takes to get you feeling better.
