I am wondering if anyone else has gone this route or similar. I currently take Depakote which has quit working. I am not a candidate for antidepressants, calcium channel blockers, or beta blockers. I read about a couple headache specialists using this for its muscle relaxant and seizure preventive properties. As well, I definitely have a high anxiety component with migraines. I have a very good headache specialist, but she is pushing Botox which I will have to pay for up front and I would like to exhaust all other options before resorting to that. I have tried the whole run of anticobvulsants, muscle relaxers, natural treatments – you name it.
Triggers include menses, extreme temp changes, and stress. Abortive: Migranal and Tylenol 2 as a backup.
I am aware that Klonopin is a benzodiazepine and know all the associated stigmas. If anyone has tried this, I would like to hear any experiences.
