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

Anyone Else Get Deja Vu?

Anyone Else Get Deja Vu?

I know it's common for people with epilepsy, but they've ruled out epilepsy and told me it's just a migraine aura. Does anyone else experience this? What usually happens is I get the deja vu in my sleep, wake up with the deja vu (it's really intense) often I have excess saliva or I have nausea and vomiting. Soon after the deja vu I experience severe headache (migraine).

I Only Get Migraines When Barometric Pressure Drops, Usually Before A Storm. Any Good Remedies For This?

I only get migraines when barometric pressure drops, usually before a storm. If I don't drink coffee or something with caffeine right away, nothing helps at all. Does anyone have good remedies for this kind of migraine?

A MyMigraineTeam Member

I wish I did. When there are a series of storms, I take a low dose of prednisone for about a week. Seems to break the cycle.

Intractable Migraines- Any Ideas On How To Stop Them?

Intractable Migraines- Any Ideas On How To Stop Them?

I get lots of intractable migraines that last longer that 48-72 hours & don't respond to standard treatment (also called status migrainosus). I would love to know if any of you have ideas on how to treat them?

To complicate things further I can't take ergots or triptans because of severe side effects to these medications in the past. My "go-to" medicine for this is a steroid taper (was 4mg methylprednisolone taper pack but eventually that stopped helping & the dr upped the dose to a 20mg predniread more
