I live with almost 24/7 migraines. I have tried several medications for it: Amitryptiline, Topamax, Propranolol, etc. but none of them seem to work properly. The other day my migraine was so bad I started overbreathing and got anxious. My mother decided to give me 0.5 of lorazepam (Ativan) to calm me down. Suprisingly, my depressed, anxious feelings, as well as my migraines, were completely gone. So far, this has been the only pill that could relieve me from my migraines. I talked my doctor about it and said it was possible due to its anticonvulsant effects and the possibily that my depression/anxiety could trigger migraines. However, my doctor struggles to prescribe them for me, as they can be habit forming and addictive. Has anyone else experience with Ativan for migraines and/or what do you think about it?
