Has anyone tried this new form of triptan? their doctor mention it?
I have tried triptans before, and nothing really ever worked to my liking. I am taking Topamax for migraines, Neurontin for Occipital Neuralgia, MigRelief (herbal supplements), and a muscle relaxer when needed for all of my nagging issues at a mere 20+ years old. I am also receiving Botox, which seems to be working (only two rounds down). However, I would love to get off of Topamax as I am still in school.
Many people take Triptans in the form of pills and shots, which work like a charm, and quite frankly I’m jealous. When I get a migraine I generally have no relief because the singular triptan that has worked (Frova) I’ve been allergic to.
I recently talked to my neurologist about doing a rundown of sorts through my medical history. We talked about trying to see if something we tried previously might work differently now, seeing as how I was in my mid teens when I first started getting them. I don’t know how that would work, and quite frankly it is a little nerve wracking changing something around that has become somewhat of a comfort (Topamax). With as many triptans as there are out there, and as many flat-out medications they use to remedy migraines there has to be something else.
Best/Worst Experience with Triptans…?
