I am new to this forum and very happy that I found this place! I have been having migraine for around 18 years now. For the past 17.5 years, I have only been taking Excedrin migraine for the pain but it never worked. I was always miserable, couldn't tolerate the noise, kids screaming, talking on the phone with a loud voice so my old grandma could hear me, etc. Then I decided to take my doctor's advice and start taking metoprolol daily (50 mg at night). It helped and brought the no. of headaches from 7 days a week to 1-2 days. My doctor also prescribed Sumatriptan to take as needed and that was helping for 2-3 months as well. Then stopped working.
I was wondering what medication everyone is on (daily preventive) and what medication your doctor prescribed for taking as needed and what your experience with them is. How often do you get a headache while on these medication, etc.
My headaches are usually on one side, under the left eyebrow where it's close to my nose and most of the time it goes all the way to my temple.
Thank you in advance
