Just wanted to know if anyone knows of all the migraine medications out there that can help with migraines. Over the counter, prescriptions, preventative n home remedies are all welcome! Thanks from the bottom of my heart!
I currently take Zonegran. I was taking a mild antidepressant with it initially but have discontinued that. If I feel a migraine starting I take a Zomig and Aleve and it typically knocks it out.
I was on Topomax years ago. My headaches reduced, but I use to loose my train of thought, forgot my daughter's birthday and difficult praying out loud at one of our Bible study classes. Oh...I lost weight! Got off of it the same year. Felt loopy.
I was on topamax for seven years. My doctors had me stop it this summer as I was starting to have issues with my kidneys. I didn’t like the side effects of it too. I felt so stupid. I couldn’t do anything anymore. I really struggled in school.
I was put on both lithium and verapamile and was 2 weeks headache free but they started to come back but you may be different
These are the preventative's that I have tried.
Depekote, verapamil, effexor, amitriptyline, propranalol, topamax, botox shots, gabapentin, inderal, lexapro, atenolol.
Currently back on propanolol for high blood pressure but it has not helped with migraines.
I pretty much have up on finding a preventative that didn't have severe side effects and actually helps with my migraines. Now I just treat with sumitriptan pills or shots as needed.
