I use sumatriptan 100mg for migraine which occur without Aura but a very noticeable prodrome. When I first discovered it I was amazed how the pain just disappeared after about an hour.
I now notice that quite often the pain will come back, normally after 5 to 9 hours and I need to take another 100mg dose. This might continue for a couple of days before the migraine does not return.
I was wondering if anyone experiences similar, as all the information I have read says you can taken a second dose if the migraine went away but came back after a couple of hours. Does anyone know if it is ok to treat it several times like this over the course of two to three days?
They seem to follow the same pattern so I don’t think it is rebound headaches. This might happen 2-3 times a month.
Thanks for any thoughts or opinions!
