I’ve had migraines since I was in college but only in my early 40’s did they change to menstrual migraines (which, as luck would have it, I’ve read are the worst of the migraines and the hardest to treat…) Up until now I’ve been trying to control them with OTC Advil and natural supplements it’s been hit or miss in terms of how it’s worked. The last few menstrual cycles have yielded some really severe migraine attacks at the end of my period and I decided I couldn’t take it anymore.
So while I was at the doctor today for sinus infection issues, I also talked to him about this and he prescribed Naproxen 500 mg. I haven’t had a chance to try it yet (having headaches from sinus infection but Advil seems to be working for them) but I will when my cycle hits late this month. We’ll see if it helps.
I confess I hate taking prescription drugs of any kind and I resisted doing this for many years. But if it offers me the relief I need, it will be worth it.
