Hi has anyone experience with really bad fatigue with gabapentin? My doctor started me off on 100mg and gradually increased it to 300mg. I have only been taking the 300mg for 2 days but I fell so sleepy. Does this pass? If so how long did it take to pass? On the up side it is helping with my migraines so I am thankful for that

Does anyone have a bed mattress or pillow that you think helps with the migraines?

I'm also on the fibromyalgia board, and there was a mattress thread with mixed reviews on all of them. I need to replace my mattress and thought I would see if there was a good recommendation here. With multiple physical issues, I'm just looking for relief anywhere I can get it.

Thanks in advance for your input!

Does anyone else feel brain dead after taking a triptan?

I had another migraine and took a triptan before trying to sleep. The migraine left but left me dizzy and struggling to think clearly. I just threw a fresh loaf in the bin and put it out for the binmen. Can anyone else relate to this?

What abortive treatments do you take? What other treatments have you tried that gets rid of the migraine?

I take sumatriptan injections and relpax. The last couple weeks have been horrible and I’m running through them like crazy. I know about rebound headaches but if I want to be functional I need to take something. My parents are wanting me to see a chiropractor but when I’ve been in the past, it’s made them worse.
