This is my first post here. A quick background on my history is I've been suffering with migraines ever since Middle school age (now would be over 20 years). They seem to go in cycles they go away for a while then come back for long time. I used to get some relief from ice packs and sleeping them off but that doesnt help anymore. Anyway, I tried gabapentin a few years back and it helped but then I was taken off of it. Well fast forward to now and I had to go. Ack to the neurologist to try and get some relief.
So I was put on gabapentin again first 300mg, then 600mg, and I was getting more migraines on it so they stopped me on it.
I have tried Imitrex, and Relpax which helped at first but theb the migraines returned the next day without fail every time. Now I take zomig with an aleve and it helps knock out the headache.
Anyway, sorry for the long intro (tried to keep it brief). I just saw the dr this week and she wanted to give me topamax But I dont want to take that for personal reasons.
I will mention I take 400mg of magnesium every day. When I first taking it it helped with the the migraines but it doesnt seem to help anymore. So fast forward to now - the dr suggested Vitamin B2.
She said 50mg once a day, but My main question is, is this enough for this purpose? I guess it is worth a try but I was reading about it and it seems everything I read says that 400mg is the reccomended amount that helps. So I'm just wondering if anyone has tried it. And if you think 50mg is enough? I'm not sure!
Thanks and good luck to everyone.
