I just made an appointment with a neurologist to get back on preventative and abortive meds for my migraines as they have gotten a little out of control again. I have taken almost all of the Triptans on the market at some point. With most of them, I either had unbearable side effect, they didn't work, or a combination of the 2. I ended up using Zomig with moderate success. It worked about 30% of the time with 1 dose and about 60% of the time with 2 doses. It is not as expensive as it was the last time around. I was paying $110 for 9 pills now I can get it for $26. I am going to ask the doctor to prescribe Zomig but I also want to try out Nurtec. The reason I am still going to get the Zomig is because I have had such bad reactions to abortive meds in the past I want to make sure I try the Nurtec when I dont have to go to work, which is only 1 day a week right now. I am looking for some insight from people that have not had good luck with Triptans and made the switch to CGRPs. Also, sorry for the novel!
