(This is the first time I’ve tried to use a support group. Apologies if I am not doing it correctly.) It is my understanding that taking Imitrex and Zomig is not recommended for people over 55 or 60 due to danger of stroke. In my case, it is helpful to take 1/2 pill at night to prevent waking up with a cloudy head that then becomes a migraine as well as taking 1/2 – 2/3 to a whole pill to ‘abort’ a migraine or when laid out in bed with one. This may average out at 26 pills/month. Am 77, have had migraines for more than 50 years, have low blood pressure and am otherwise healthy. Do not see any alternative to the triptans but am I taking too many? Also take Lamotrigine.
