Mine is at least trying stuff for me, but I'm ready for that referral to the neurologist he keeps promising me. I'm hoping to have better luck with the VA.

Thanks for sharing. I have tried several over the counter things, and few prescribed things but not much. I don't have a very good Neurologist. Well he says there is no magic pill and he can't do anything to help me, and tells me to buy books that are about migraines and read them and it will cure my migraines. He is a fruit!

I've tried several treatments, and none seem to work very long for me. I did try the Badger's Headache Balm awhile back, but got little relief that only dulled the pain a little. Excedrin Migraine helps a little, if I catch it early. But it makes me nauseous most of the time so I usually have to take meclizine with it. (Found in dramamine/bonine motion sickness meds). I prefer Advil Migraine but it's not as easy to find most of the time, and never in generic form.

I've tried Topomax but had really bad side effects and still got the migraines about 2x a week. I wasn't able to sleep for days in a row, so I also got Ambien, which I did NOT like. It helped me fall asleep but I didn't sleep more than 4 hours, then I saw spots and other strange shapes until it wore off completely. I had the tingling in my fingers and toes that didn't go away after I was to the high dose. On the plus side, it drastically curbed my cravings for sweets. It made most of them taste very bitter.

I've tried Elavil that helped for awhile but stopped working and my doctor didn't want to increse my dosage any more. The best luck I've had on preventatives was Verapamil but I'd still have occassional migraines. Imitrex I did not like. It gave me the feeling of anxiety attack for the first 30+ minutes after taking. Once all those symptoms were gone, so was the migraine, but that feeling in the beginning wasn't worth it to me. One of the military ER doctors gave me Midrin, but they quit making it. It worked really well for me even though it made me drowsy. I've heard it is being made again so I need to ask my doctor about it.

I'm currently waiting to get in the VA health system so they can give me free meds, and maybe actually refer me to the neurologist. My doctor keeps saying he will refer me 'if this doesn't work', but not so far. So basically yeah I have given up on him. Luckily I'm not having quite as many 'attacks' these days but I'm sure they will be more frequent again soon.

Has anyone ever heard of or tried...
Migrastick
Badger's Headache Balm
TigerBalm
BioFreeze

I used to use HeadOn, until they quit making it for some reason. It was wonderful. Seems like everytime I find something I like and that works, they discontinue it. When I found out they were taking it off the market I went to every store around and bought what they had left. I ended up with about 10 HeadOn sticks. I'm out now sadly!

I agree and as awful as it sounds, good migraine meds are one thing in this world that I never want to be without. The quality of life I'd have without them is pretty poor. That being said, I've been working with a generic Amerge that's just terrible. It doesn't work very well at all. I went with it because it's 1/4 the price of the Treximet I was taking and Amerge always worked well in the past. I was foolish enough to think that the generic would work the same. Not so. I have to take it with Aleve in order to get any relief and even then, it's very temporary relief.

I have quite a lot of migraines, with my preventative, I'd have daily migraines and in fact, I've been having a lot lately anyway. Not sure why, but it could be the time of year or allergies, but my doc and I need to talk. I've tried eating a banana with I feel one coming on, but it doesn't help. I do the caffeine thing, I try to have a certain amount of caffeine every day...not a lot, though...just to keep myself even and a tad more if I feel one coming on and it can help a lot. The problem is that too much can make it worse, so knowing where that line is can be hard.

Someone with a PhD in human nutrition told me that when someone has a migraine that the blood levels of potassium are low. He gave me some potassium pills. They did seem to work. Then my primary care practitioner told me that too much potassium can cause heart failure and death. emoticon

My primary care practitioner suggested magnesium instead. When in doubt, always go for the treatment that won't kill you.

So my first line of defense when I even think I am getting a migraine is mineral rich food. Since bananas are rich in both potassium and magnesium, that's where are start.

I often make a smoothie (if I things are still going well enough that I can use a blender) with banana, orange juice, and yogurt (and any other fruit that seems handy.) This is often enough nip the migraine in the bud.

My second line of defense is caffeine. Since I don't normally get a lot of caffeine, a cup or two of full-strength tea or a cup of coffee is often enough to get rid of any residual.

I haven't had any ZOMIG (my 3rd line of defense) for 2 years (although I usually don't get more than one migraine a month, so I wasn't taking that much before.) At one point I remember thinking about what my most precious possessions were, and the first thing that popped into my mind was migraine meds.

I checked out the Tylenol Precise the other day, but I saw that at least the patches are warm. I didn't know about the cream, but I don't do heat. I prefer cold and I remember being able to find those small menthol patches for headaches. I loved putting one on my forehead and it would stay there for hours. That felt great, but it appears they are no longer sold anywhere.

I have Bio-freeze that I use for sore muscles, but I don't want that on my forehead, because it gets hot after a while. It only starts out cold.

I haven't found an ice pack that will stay put on my forehead while I'm working at the computer. Bummer.

Thanks for the info about the Tylenol Precise. I'll be near a Walmart later today, so I'll try to check it out. I'm having a migraine right now, I took a Treximet, so it will be gone soon, but something to put on the spot sure would be nice as well.

Yes, you might have to up your dosage of Topomax. I started out with 25 mg, then went up slowly. The 25 mg. worked very well quickly, but didn't do the trick. I moved to 50 mg and that worked better. I think I moved up with 100 mg within a few months and I stayed on that for about 18 mos and I had only 3 migraines in that time. I was absolutely amazed. Then I needed a cortisone shot for a frozen shoulder and it triggered my migraines again. I had 4 in as many days and over the next month, I had quite a few more. The doctor didn't think the shot should have done that, but it was the only thing that could have done it, so now, we're very careful about anything like that.

We went through months of trying to find the right dosage and as a rule, the 200 mg. I'm on now seems to work the best for me. I have had a hard time for the past couple of months for some reason, but up until the past 2 months, I've been doing great with it.

I've never had the depression side effects, I wish I had the lower appetite side effects and the slight confusion, tingling fingers/toes sensation side effects I'd get after each increase in dosage would only last a couple of weeks and then go away.

Sorry, yeah Tylenol Precise is available at most places like Walmart, etc. I get mine at Walmart.

I do really good on Topamax so far. One thing I was wondering for those that have taken it though. I've been on 50 mg for a few months now and hadn't been having headaches or migraines at all but am starting to have them again. Is this common? My doctor did say at one point I may have to go up on the mg at some point but where it was working we had thought I wouldn't.

Warning: Some of the side effects of Topomax are depression/nightmares and a loss of appetite which for some is too severe. I would do more research if I were you. I had to quit it.

I dont' know if you all know about it or have tried it but I recently tried Tylenol Precise pain relieving cream. I use it on my neck, shoulders and temples when I'm having a migraine and it helps quite a bit.

I'm on 200mg of Topamax a day as well, same as you MISSJEAN, 100mg in the morning & 100mg at bedtime. Also 4mg of Periactin twice a day for prevention. I'm still having 3-5 migraines a week, though; and some sort of headache nearly every day. I use Fiorinal w/Codeine for the migraines, and Zanaflex for the tension headaches - but the Zanaflex makes me so sleepy! emoticon My neuro is trying to get my insurance to approve Botox. He says he's had patients that have had remarkable results with it. I'm not crazy about needles (especially that many of them!), but if it works, I'm all in! emoticon

As far as I'm concerned, preventative meds aren't such a bad thing. I'm happy that I'm on them. After having some sort of head pain every single day for 40 years, a full migraine for 2-3 days a week and a knock-down-drag-out migraine that put me out for the count a couple of times a month, I was thrilled to find something I could take every day to take that pain away. I know it's not for everyone, but I feel like a real person now. At 43, I knew what a day without pain could be like. It was amazing.

Hello everyone! It's good reading posts and knowing I'm not alone. I've had one of those "weeks" lately. I've had a headache everyday for over a week now and I hate it. So far it's not gone migraine but I figure that's probably coming. My doc said that next time I had a cluster and a "bad one" I'd have to go on preventive meds. ugh!

Sorry I didn't answer sooner. I'm taking 200 mg. of Topamax a day. I take 100mg in the morning as soon as I get up and 100 mg before bed. I should really take it every 12 hours, but I find that taking it this way works and I never for it. I keep it in my nightstand as I have no children at home (both are adults) and I take it as soon as my feet hit the floor in the morning and again before my feet leave the floor to get into bed. Seems to be the perfect dosage for me.

I did have some side effects with every increase in dosage, but none lasted more than a couple of weeks and they were mild. Some tingling in my fingers and toes. I also felt very mild confusion a couple of times, but again, all went away within a short time, as soon as my body got used to the new dosage. We upped it slowly.

MissJean, I dont mean to be nosey but I was wondering what dosage of Topamax you are on. I am currently taking 50 mg and its really not doing anything and am thinking it needs to be a higher dose.

The only "treatment" that has ever helped was cutting out aspartame...and that only helps a tiny bit. I still have a headache EVERY day. None of the preventative pills help at all, and nothing I take after I get a migraine helps either. Ugh! :P

But y'all should really read "Heal Your Headache" ...it's great!

I just really started using the spark website in the last few weeks and I just want to say that I think it's great that there are groups on here for those who suffer with migraine disease. Most people without this devastating condition cannot imagine the kind of pain, suffering, and sometimes depression, that we endure. Even worse, the stigma often associated with this disease can be very frustrating. I just want to say hello to everyone and tell you to hang in there and hopefully it will get better for all of us!
emoticon

Now to answer the question, I have had migraines for over half my life (since my teens) and it seems that I have tried just about every preventive, attack, and pain med known to man. I currently take Nadolol, Zanaflex (generic), and Magnesium as preventive meds along with having my second round of Botox injections recently. I also use a mouthguard at night that my dentist custom made for me a few months ago. I was also doing physical therapy for a few weeks but finished that a couple of months or so ago since my neck and shoulder pain got better. I do still occasionally do stretches at home like the OP mentioned. I use Frova or a myriad of other Triptan drugs for attacks along with occasional pain and/or nausea medication if needed. I do occasionally use OTC Excedrin also along with a caffeinated soda but it usually doesn't work and I only take it in an effort that there's a small chance it will and I won't have to take the RX drugs which make me feel horrible. Let me tell you, those Excedrin commercials make me laugh when I see them, I wished I could take an OTC pill and my "headache" would be gone in 30 minutes!

Anyway, I'm rambling now, sorry, just want to wish everyone a wonderful, pain-free day!

I've been on Topamax for 7 years now and it's been a great preventative. I've heard from many others that they couldn't take the side effects, but for me, they were mild and went away after a very short time. It's been a miracle drug for me, since I had had daily migraines on some level from the time I was 3 years old. Yes, I know young children rarely get migraines, but this is why my dr. tells me that mine are "particularly tenacious" and probably why menopause will not make them go away.

I've tried a lot of the abortive meds, Maxalt makes me queasy, Zomig makes my heart race, Imitrex does the same, Amerge works pretty well, but takes up to 2 hours to work depending on my level of pain and now I'm on Treximet. That works quickly and although it is basically just Imitrex with Aleve, the Aleve in it seems to calm the side effect of the Imitrex. I only feel a slight side effect and as soon as my pain is gone, so is the effect. I do tend to feel a bit woozy after my pain is over, but I've always felt that 'hangover' feeling, probably because it's so hard on the body to be in that kind of pain.

If I can, I try to relax and close my eyes to see if that will help. Sometimes I can actually work through the pain by getting up and getting physically active. Especially if this is a weekend, I get up and tackle my house and don't stop until the pain is gone. This doesn't always work and I never know if it will work until I try it. If the pain gets worse, I know this is not the time for it. I've tried the hot water thing, usually dunking my hands in the hot water, but it doesn't work for me. I need ice packs on my forehead and eyes, even the back of my neck instead. Then I wrap up in a quilt and relax.

Not everything works all the time, but every so often, a trick I used one day might work another day. The only sure thing is taking a RX when the pain is bad enough for it. Anything is a gamble.

Topamax as a preventative after trying several others we are back to Topamax. Just got back from dr she is adding another preventative. Have Fioricet or Zomig for when a migraine hits.

I need to try the Exedrine Migraine when I finish babysitting. I always used Aleve, which I love, but I think I hear great things about Exedrine. I have never tried the whole sitting feet in hot water bit. That sounds SO good!

Well I guess I could answer my own question LOL

I use daily stretches (neck and shoulders) to help keep them away, I also have a small dose of caffeine in the mornings to help stave them off (per doctors orders amazingly LOL), and I try to avoid triggers.

As far as meds go I am not currently on anything that I take daily but have the following meds on standby when they hit: Maxalt, Midrin, Flexeril, and my fave OTC med is Exedrine Migraine. And since mine usually come with nausea and/or vertigo I have antivert on hand as well.

Also when I have a bad one and I'm at home I do something my PT told me. I fill the bathtub up with water as hot as I can handle, put on a pair of short shorts and grab a chair. Sitting in the chair I put my feet and legs into the water and sit and relax. During this time I do not read, or talk or anything I just relax. This helps the blood flow.

And of course there's always the dark room with no noise when it gets too bad and I hate when that happens.

I used to take Topomax when I had seizures for a short time. It was pretty effective with the headaches!

Currently I'm on a preventive med called Topamax as well as Repax for when one those ugly little monsters come to play. This seems to make my life more predicable:)

When not breastfeeding I'm big on Ginseng for staving off the headache pain, Chelli. The stuff is great with helping with human blood flow which helps the headache. But the doctor had me on Maxalt for awhile, which was a huge help in those raging, leaving you nearly ready to pass out headaches. They dissolve on the tongue quickly and within minutes the headache isn't just smaller, but GONE.

What kind of treatments whether it be medicine, avoiding triggers, or more holistic treatments do you use to help combat your migraines?
