... nothing works. The last migraine I had this month, I took a morphine pill. I could not believe it... my migraine was gone. I mean it actually took it away. Of course the next day it was back, but I never have had ANY medication even put a dent in the excruciating pain I am in every month. Once I tried another narcotic painkiller and it helped somewhat. I want to ask if anyone has had the same experience with morphine taking their migraine away.Also, what about prescription migraine meds, like Imitrex? Has anyone found any of them to help?
I am sorry to just now be seeing your question. I had migrain headaches for 30 years or more, & started the immitrex injections. With each one the headaches became further apart & less intense which was the purpose of the med in the first place. After a while they completely stopped. I'm not sure if they still make the injection kind, but they do make pills. I hear they are not as effective, but another member said Axert has helped with their migrains. I hope this helps you out. Morphine can actually give you headaches I have also heard. Not reccomended for migrains. Hope you get to feeling better...
