I’ve suffered from migraines since my teens. They became more frequent in my early forties. I was also prescribed Triptan drugs at that time. I am now 55. I was told that after menopause, they would get better, but that didn’t happen. They are just as frequent if not more so now. The triptans have become a blessing and a curse. They allow me to function, but I feel I’m now truly suffering mainly from rebound headaches.
Has anyone— particularly women had an experience where you stopped taking medication as you got older and found that it was actually medication that was the main cause of your migraines? The idea of suffering through weeks or months of pain is overwhelming and I usually give in after a few days because I have to be able to function.
