Hi, I have suffered from chronic migraine for many years and in the past couple of years the pain has become constant. In order to function I take triptan and aspirin most days. I am aware I probably have medication overuse headache although after detoxing off all meds for 6 months last year, the pain was still constant.
I started Propanalol in January this year but didn’t notice a huge difference. Until the last month I was able to work part time but now as Sumitripan and Zomitriptan don’t seem to be working, I have been unable to function.
I tried a steroid taper but it didn’t do anything. My Dr has recently started me on Pizotifen. Has anyone had sucess with this preventative?
I have tried most of the preventative medications previously, had an unsuccessful nerve block and a few rounds of botox which also didn’t help.
I am reluctant to go cold turkey again as it was absolute hell last year and didn’t bring me any relief after 6 months.
Any help would be appreciated as I am at my wits end with it!
