My migraine specialist has decided I should try vicoden, used very sparingly, in his words, to get a break from my migraines. I have had narcotics, very rarely, for my migraines, in the hospital, but I try to avoid them because of the rebound effect. I also very much doubt that hydrocodone is going to do. Much. I currently inject toradol at home, and if that doesn't work, I end up in the er, where they end up giving me hydromorphine. This only happens about twice a year, because I hate going to er, and usually I would rather just deal with the pain as best I can at home. I am a chronic migrainer, so the migraine basically never fully goes away. And since I only use the meds 3 time a week Max, the other four I'm stuck anyway. Guess I'm just skeptical about using a narcotics as a regular basis treatment. Don't want the situation to get worse, or to end up with med overuse headache. Shpuld I try it anyway, since that is what my Dr wants?
