Howdy again, Migraine Warriors. I'm dealing with a symptom that seems to have dual causes & I'm curious who else struggles with it & how they deal with it, especially ways to reverse the effects. Memory loss. Like, severe dementia-style memory loss. Scary, will-i-wake-up-tomorrow-&-not-know-who-i-am scary. My causes seem to be migraine compounded by years of gabapentin (neurontin) use. I've gotten several responses from my PCP about it from 'your only option is to quit the gabapentin & hope for… read more
my doctor started me on memantine, which it what they prescribe for people with dementia. Too soon to see if it helps
I'm currently on depakote for my epilepsy. Has anybody had luck with this drug as a migraine component? I'm currently taking two 500mg tablets at night. Along with my neurontin 800mg one tablet 3x a day.
I'm seeing my neurologist on the 12th. I'm currently on Neurontin for migraines. Does anyone have a suggestion for one for be good to add/replace it?

Anyone else have luck BeKooool Soft Gel Sheets? Tamed my migraine last night. That plus 2 tabs of advil. Had a small cup of coffee with dinner. Might have been the cause. Anyway, it really helped.

I was hospitalized over the weekend due to what started out as a horrible headache, then vomiting, and memory loss.
