Life with migraines

I was born with Hydrocephalus which causes headaches. When I was about 18, headaches increased and I saw my primary doctor for help. I was sent to a Neurologist and tried on many multiple medications. Have migraines on a daily basis. One medication that has worked is Topamax.

Stopping treatment during pregnancy

I had to go off of it while I was pregnant with my son. The migraines were horrible. I was told I wouldn't be able to breastfeed because I'd have to go back on Topamax. In the years since I've tried other medications with Topamax. Some work, others don't.

Migraine cocktail

Currently taking Topromax ER, Acetazolamide, and Naratriptain-PRN. I've been to the ER more times than I can count. I've had a few different migraine cocktails. Currently what works is Ativan, Haldol, Regaln, and Benadryl. Also getting Botox every 3 times a month.
