How do I find the recommended ER doctors views, as provided by neurologists on using narcotics for migraines?
I've had migraines for 60 years, and if I go to the ER for my usual shot of 1 mg of hyrdomorphone IM, the ER doctor will that the neurologists tell them not to give them due to rebound headaches. Generally, they say this means the migraine will come back the next day. For me, the migraine will be gone in 10 to 15 minutes and will not rebound! I'm trying to find the source of this rule and the details of the actual rule itself. Plus, are they saying all people, all times or what? I have been getting these shots for over 20 years, usually every 30 days or so and they have always worked, with no rebound.
I'm trying to figure out if I'm rarity in this situation or not? I have not been able to find the source, with very little help from neurologists or ER doctors. I do not take any other opioids for migraines and my regular drug does not cause rebound headaches, per my neurologist! I guess I'm not a "good" medical researcher! Of course, with the new opioid laws, I can no longer get these shots, but I would still like to know the actual metrics on this method. Thanks very much!
