Are The Side Effects Of Certain Medications Worth The Chance Of Lessening You Migraine?

Yes, the side effects of the medicines are worse than the headache. All migraine meds cause dizziness.

Alot of what Drs put me on are basic pain killers. I can't stand feeling the way I do. I would rather deal with the pain and keep going forward. I quit all medications for about 20 yrs to clean my system out.

I developed kidney stones and then kidney disease after ten years on Topamax. I don’t think that was worth it.

No drugs will solve a true migraine no doctor will solve a true migraine doctors having figured out what causes a migraine ask him yourself they will say I do not know I suffered for 46 years with my migraine 35 years ago I asked myself why all the doctors in the world couldn't solve a migraine the only answer I could come up with was they were doing something wrong at the time I knew nothing about headaches after about 20 years of studying headaches I found two major mistakes one is doctors call way too many headaches a migraine which is b******* take a minute sit down and see how many types of headaches you yourself can come up with and if you believe they can all be solved with drugs I can't help there are many types of headaches and many types of solutions I have solved a few types of headaches drugs will only temporary relieve to pain your migraine is just one headache you're very first migraine that is your problem all other headaches afterwards are a direct cause of your first migraine it is a psychological problem not a medical problem that is why doctors will never solve a migraine and ask for drugs no drug will solve a true migraine you must go back to your very first migraine that is the cause of your problems study your first migraine when did it happen where were you what was going on in your life something happened that your subconscious cannot comprehend it is a psychological problem not a medical problem I saw my migraine 16 years ago I spent another 8 years trying to figure out how to help others now I'm doing so if you wish not to believe me that is fine with me I really don't understand it because if you suffered for 46 years like I did I would listen to somebody you said they could solve a migraine but that's me if you think your doctor's God by all means go to him any questions just ask
