Triptan Overuse Rebound Headaches

Triptan Overuse Rebound Headaches

What do you guys know about triptan overuse headaches?

I just learned of them from a nurse at my neurologist’s office. This had never been mentioned before by my neurologist and he prescribes me 30 rizatriptans per month and 7 frovatriptans per month, which covers my 20 migraines (if they decide to work). However, I had no idea that by taking the prescribed medication as directed, I could actually be causing more migraines. But if I don’t take them, I’m in excruciating pain and am… read more

At What Number On A Scale From 1-10 Do You Rate Your “Average” Migraine Pain?

At What Number On A Scale From 1-10 Do You Rate Your “Average” Migraine Pain?

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 seeking dark, quiet and bring nausea medication on… read more

How Long Did It Take Till You Saw Improvement Going Cold Turkey On Pain Relief?

I have chronic migraines & by not finding any form of relief I've ended up taking strong painkillers almost everyday for a long time. I've been told by my doc to stop, how long did it take to see improvement.
