Hi all, I’ve had migraines for 20 years (since I was 12) and they have gotten more frequent and intense over the years. I started using Triptans in 2015 and they are the only thing that’s ever helped, but since last November I’ve started needed them every day (40mg eletriptan). Id like to break the cycle but I don't have time to be sick for days or weeks. I get mixed messages from doctors and pharmacists about whether its ok or not to take this much, but I don't want to risk it and I’m also trying to get pregnant and there don’t seem to be studies on birth impacts of people taking as much as I do. I’ve been trying to ween myself off by pushing time between pills as much as I can, but it doesn’t seem to be working. I’m wondering, knowing triptans work for me, if there is a natural way to achieve a similar result with whatever these drugs do to my serotonin receptors. I've tried beta-blockers, magnesium, ergotamine, acupuncture, exercise, exclusion diets (with no results) and now I work from home to avoid bad lights, noise, etc. Not sure what else I can reasonably do, but I’m feeling like an addict and Im worried about my long term health on these drugs. Thanks for any tips.
