I was just prescribed Sumatriptans, but took and Excedrin Migraine 6 hrs ago. Is it safe to take the sumatriptans? The Excedrin Migraine did not work!

Does anybody have or get any type of speech problems when leading up to or during a Migraine?
I develop a stammer and struggle to even get any words out. This then upsets me and thus makes my migraine come on quicker or makes it worse.
I have had similar problems.. I try to take a deep breath and try to talk
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 😓.

Oh no,that’s one of my greatest fears,but hey,12 years that’s great! What are you taking now if you don’t mind me asking?
I have had a headache for 3 years/3 months every day, all day. Sometimes I have an aura, but it is not a classic migraine...no problems with light or loud noise, no vomiting. It is debilitating and doctors cannot figure it out.
I don't think they are psychological but medical and for me I found drinking more water has helped

Stay safe and I hope everyone has a migraine free day!!!
