Fioricet and Maxalt are life savers! For years I only took Fioricet and it did nothing for hormone headaches. Then I discovered Maxalt and I got my life back Now I can take a Fioricet and if that doesn't kick it, add Maxalt and drink coffee. I can hit em hard and cut the migraine from 3 days, minimum, to hours. But I have to fight my insurance company for Maxalt. That's a whole other topic. But every day is a new adventure, said with a mouthful of sarcasm. I never know how much sleep, or lack thereof, will trigger me. Foods, It's a crapshoot. I just want one day with no pain!
