Anyone Taking Memantine?
A MyMigraineTeam Member asked a question 💭

My insurance company is blocking me from getting Emgality and after approving my Ubrelvy since November, is now denying it. The Botox is not working anymore. So now my neurologist is saying that we are running out of options, but has put in a prescription for Memantine 5mg BID. Is anyone else on this? Has it helped?

I thought Mematine was for memory?? My mom takes that she has dementia.

Medications
A MyMigraineTeam Member asked a question 💭

Please please let me know some names of medications that you have had some success with. I have tried a couple with not much success. I have found that botox works but I am unable to have health benefits at this time. When I did have benefits it was covered and life was not as painful 😓.

I have a preventive and I take a prescribed cocktail at a infusion clinic that helps me for a couple of weeks.

Migraines And Climate Change
A MyMigraineTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hi there
I am greatly impacted by changes in the barometric pressure - temp changes, big storms, etc. This winter has been especially rough weather wise as we transition to bigger and more intense storms. I have good medical care for my migraines but even still, there are more weather days that the meds can't fix. Today in the Northeast we are having yet another "record" storm. I was just wondering if other people are having the same issue? Thank you

This is definitely a game changer for me. I can definitely tell when the weather is changing up. This one have me in bed everything. When the seasons changing my migraine let's me know. Ugh!

Has Anyone Tried The Migraine Stopper?
A MyMigraineTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hi everyone,
I just read about a device being promoted called, The Migraine Stopper.
It basically puffs some air into the ear and gives an explanation of how this stops or limits a migraine attack.
You can Google it for the full explanation.
I was born a skeptic, and have only gotten more skeptical as I age.
I’m just curious if any of you have heard of it or tried it.
Thank you and I wish all of you well.

I have used this on 3 occasions. So far I have not found it to be effective. If future uses changes my opinion I will repost, but for now, my opinion: save your money.
