Has anyone tried Imitrex
As I've mentioned before, I am long time headache sufferer. They seem to be hormonal. Since I have stopped the pill, they are not lasting as long in duration, though they can still get pretty awful. I tried imitrex one time, but I don't think I took it in time.
Has anyone tried imitrex for their headaches and had any luck? I am considering talking to my doc this week about trying it.
I have had migraines since I was 11 years old. Mostly they were triggered by hormones, though other things can start them, too, as northpole listed. When I was in my late 30's they started to last three to five days, which I believe coincided with perimenopause.
I took Imitrex, the pill and later the nasal spray. They both worked for a while. The spray was better, as the pill was often vomited up before it could do any good. The spray is a smaller dose so the side effects were fewer.
I have been taking Zomig as an under-the-tongue dissolving tablet for several years now, and it helps. Without insurance it is $214 for 6 tablets here in Oregon through Fred Meyer. Somewhere around $35 with insurance.
I stopped menstruating two years ago and the migraines have lessened in the last three years but have not gone away. Even though there is no more bleeding I still feel that there is a cycle as before. Mine personally matches up with the moon cycles most of the time, so I know when to be extra gentle with myself.
Hugs and sympathy for the headaches!
Not sure if I've tried zomig or not. I have a disolvable pill I've tried before. I'll have to check.
I used to have also migraines, but since years I don't have any. It's important to learn to destress, (yoga, walking in the nature, pilates) also eat quality food, make sure to have regular bowel movement (at least 1 per day), otherwise the body is getting intoxicated and the head is the first to be hit by. Fasting is great also. The migraines can be also caused by the heavy metals, for this blood and urine tests need to be done! If you need further info on the latter, please contact me.
Take calium/magnesium tablets 250/500 mg strength, they help hormonal headaches!
I did not read all of what was written, but I have a sensitivity to aspartame (art. sweeetener). You'd be amazed at what all it is in. I also know that there is a yeast/fungal/sugar correlation. yeast caused swelling, yeast is a fungus and sugar feeds fungus. I love using (I am a brand snob) Oregenol. Oregeno oil has been shown to be as effective as morphine in pain relief. it reduces swelling and is non narcotic or habit forming. Good luck iin your search.
I have never heard of oregano oil. I'll have to see if I can find some.
I was in a car accident 15 yrs ago and have gotten frequent migraines since especially when I get stressed. I've tried at least 2 dozen different meds and have seen 4 neurologists. I was in a migraine study a few years ago and had botox injections which lessened the frequency of the migraines considerably. I still get the injections but my insurance won't pay for them. When I do get a migraine, I use Imitex injections.
I also tried botox and it didn't help much. The trigger toints are helping keep them from entering my neck area.
