I too have some major petpeeves about Dr.s and Dr.s offices! I can feel a migraine starting just thinking about it!!! They think they are God sometimes! Such primadonnas some of them are (not ALL).
I also have migraines and took the Imitrex route for a long time. It didn’t do much for me. (The nasal spray is great though if the migraine causes your stomach to freeze and you can’t digest a pill).
I don’t like ANY daily preventative medicine if it’s for something you don’t get often. It puts MUCH unnecessary stress on your liver especially if you only need the medicine only a few days per month.
What I take now is Fioricet. It’s got Codeine in it, if you’re not allergic to it, it’s the BEST stuff!!! Codeine is supposed to make you drowsy but it actually makes ME hyper so hubby comes home, the furniture’s been rearranged, he looks at me and says “you had a headache today, didn’t you?!?” LOL!
But seriously, try [B]Fioricet[/B] ([B]Butabital [/B]is the generic name). It’s AMAZING for migraines and will also take care of any other pain if you really need it, but shouldn’t be abused.
I used to have the type of migraines that keeps me in bed for days with a pillow over my head and the sound of a dog hair falling on the ground could send me up the walls! LOL. (That’s only a SLIGHT exaggeration). I’m not the type who can sit or lay still very long, so that would drive me craaaaaaaaazy!
Now I’m medicated and very happy about it.:roflhard:
