What are some of the more stronger medicine a doctor can give you. I'm allergic to imatrex. But there gotta be something strong to get rid of these horrible things. Do what are some of the medicine you have tried and was successful with? Thank you. Any and all advice is greatly appreciated.
Imitrex works if I take it soon enough. The last 2 times I had a migraine it didn’t work. I threw up took a second imitrex but it didn’t work.
Would the imitrex spray work better? In case I throw up aftet taking an imitrex pill.
I am to the point that I am having to take Imetrex daily just to function. I have tried to go without it but the most I can go is three days before I have to finally give in and take it. I am concerned as to what it may be doing to my heart. I take the "Reddy" brand through CVS which does not seem to work as well as the name brand. Also, each time I take an Imetrex I have to chase it with two Tylenol or Advil.
I guess most of us have our share of worrying about side effects of the migraine meds we take but some of those side effects are more serious than others. I've kind of come to terms that I'm somewhat spacey, forgetful and "lose" my words for example. It's a trade off for a reduction in pain and frequency of migraines. But earlier this year I was diagnosed with retinal vein occlusion (blood clot in the eye)… read more
I have had migraines for 10 years. Getting worse 15-20 a month. I have tried Botox, Aimovig, emgality, imitrex, topomax, naratriptan, depeco. Nothing works more than a month.

It’s a very strong drug w a lot of side effects. The infusions they are talking about are once every 3 months thru IV. Has anyone tried… read more
I have read comments about migraine scales being different for everyone. I agree with that. Which left me wondering, with 1 being the lowest and 10 the highest, pain level and incapacitation. What do you consider a “average” or tolerable number on the scale? For me, at 1-3 I feel like I could throw a party, in my head. 3-4 is normal tolerable, allowing me to still function. 5-6 I feel anxious, cautious and usually take medication. 7-8 I’m… read more
My neurologist prescribes these to me. I've only taken them a few times. But the pain of the shot gets worse every time I take it. It's literally unbearable. I get chest pains really bad afterwards, and really bad tightening in my jaw. And I know it says redness at the injection site is normal.... but I had a red welt from the shot, as well as a bunch of little bumps all around it. Then it got bigger was swollen about the size of a quarter for a few hours.
With that… read more
