I have tried countless numbers of “fast acting” medications and now, naratriptan, which was the ONLY one that occasionally worked for me, has stopped working. I have to pay about $60 out of pocked for a 9-pill blister pack, and the last 3 didn’t work for me. I am feeling frustrated because I don’t feel like I should keep wasting my money on this medication that more often doesn’t work than does. I am also on 25 mg amitriptyline, a daily preventative to to try to help from getting the migraines in the first place. I am beginning to wondering whether I will ever find a good fast acting medication for me again.
I have actually been thinking of going the medicinal marijuana route. Since I now live in a state I can obtain a prescription, and have had documented migraines since I was about 6 years old, I wouldn’t have any problems with the process. I have found that especially when nothing else works, marijuana is the ONLY thing to take the edge off. Have any other fellow migraine sufferers out there gone this route? If so, with the prescription, do you still use a fast acting medication? I want to look into all my options and talk to others in similar situations. I’d rather pay the $200 JUST to get an appointment with the doctor to give you the license for what I know works for me, than to continue throwing money down the train on something that is a placebo to me at this point….
