Trying to have a baby with severe migraines: what medications did you use?

I get severe migraines and get Botox injections and use sumatriptan and zofran shots. Just found out I can’t use them during and while I’m trying to get pregnant what did you do?

  1. Hello, cosmoastro, thank you for reaching out! I hear how overwhelming and scary it feels to be told your regular migraine management tools are not good options for you immediately before and during a pregnancy. While you wait for others to share their experiences with you, we have a variety of material about migraine and pregnancy on the site I thought you might be interested in perusing! Hopefully these resources will give you a few ideas of what might be helpful and what (in general terms) you may expect, given that all pregnancies are unique!
    Please keep us posted on how you are managing. Wishing you all the best on your journey to becoming a parent. ~Allyson ( team)

    1. Hi cosmoastro, I understand your dilemma. Have you asked your OB this question? Mine let me stay on an SSRI anti depressant and Zofran. I went to two different doctors and I have noticed that each doctor had a different perspective on medications. It must be hard to know what is best. I hope you can work this out with your doctor’s help.
