I am using some medication to treat my migraines, so I want to know more about my it's long term effects
For Migraines, medication is not the only option. For example, you can add some ginger to your daily routine and you'll feel better, but if you go with migraine medication, I believe Fioricet is the best option, and do remember don't try anything without asking to your doctor...

Thank you for sharing your input with us. You're right - managing migraine disease can take a multi faceted approach. Most of us use a combination of medications, supplements, devices, complementary therapies and lifestyle modifications, I sure do.
A word on Fioricet, this medication was used (too much in my opinion) back in the day, but the migraine specialists I've spoken with strongly discourage using it. It can lead to medication overuse headache and land us in a cycle of daily pain that is hard to break. Have you used this medication for migraine? I had a very short stint with it.
Wishing you a low pain day, Nancy Harris Bonk, Patient Leader/Moderator Migraine.com Team
If you're open to sharing the course of treatments you are taking, we can try to share what we know about the long-term effects of those medications. These are also great questions to ask your doctor. We are here for you and you are not alone in this. Warmly- Holly -migraine.com team.
