Ask for inflammation rx

I have suffered from migraines since before 1984. I recently suffered a knee injury for which I was prescribed Mobic 15 mg. Much to my surprise, I did not get a migraine while on the medication. I lowered it to 3/4 of a pill of 15 mg. and still did not get a migraine. I could not believe it. It was a prayer answer. I will try to lower the dosage to 7.5 mg. and watch the results. The point is that my neurologist had told me to always take 4 pills of Advil for inflammation at the beginning of an attack as well as taking the Sumatripton 100 mg. that he prescribed. Now I understand that reasoning. The impact on my life was huge! I know could wake up each day knowing that I would be feeling normal for once. Thanks be to God!

    Thanks for sharing! Yes anti-inflammatory meds can be extremely helpful in managing migraines. Toradol is another anti-inflammatory often used when trying to break a rough cycle of Migraines, but a little too potent to use every day.

    Aleve has some similar properties as the Mobic you are using. However, in taking these types of drugs, there is the risk of internal bleeding if taken at high doses for a long period of time. Here’s a great article about the benefits and risks of taking anti-inflammatories for Migraines:
