i had the migraines and was diagnosed with them before i was pregnant and was given tramadol. i know that i cant take the tramadol because of birth defects but is there anything else i can take? my doctor wont give me anything other than Tylenol with codeine 3 and it doesnt help. is there anything that is safe?
yes, doctors do know other items that are avaible for you to take. so I would reconmend that you get a second opinium or change your doctor, not all doctors are good at their job! ive found two doctors surgery`s that the hosptial have looked in total discuss at what the doctors have prescribed. hope this helps. ps, unless completely qualified as a doctor no one can suggest what meds to take becouse of the meds that you are on as with side effects.
You could try alternative medicine like magnesium or visit a health store and see what else they offer, with the guidance of your doctor. For me tylenol and codeine worsen my headaches/migraines and cause several rebound ones. Caffeine and tylenol would even work better, don't overdo the caffeine obviously, some products have both these in them already as it's a proven headache helper. Unfortunately you may just have to wait it out with ice and heat until baby comes. When are you due?
