What’s Working as Preventatives

  • 3 mg nightly of Klonopin

  • Aimoveg injection once per month

  • 100mg Topomax twice a day


What Hasn’t Worked as Preventatives

  • Amitriptyline

  • Nortriptyline

  • Trazodone

  • Aetenolol

  • Gabapentin

  • Effexor

And there are even more that I can't remember


Supplements That Have Worked

  • 250 mg of Magnesium daily


What Works for Pain

  • Imitrex Nasal Spray – hit and miss

  • Imitrex injections – hit and miss

  • Tylenol Number 3s – hit and miss

  • Staedol – hit and miss

  • Excedrin Migraine for normal headaches

  • Tramadol


My doctor made a suggestion of one 50mg Tramadol and one Tylenol 3, and this has been MAGIC


What Hasn’t Worked for Pain

  • Relpax

  • Maxalt

  • Naproxen (up to 400 mg)

  • Sumatriptan

  • Phenobarbital


There have been more fails too, but I can't remember them all.

What Works for Vomiting

  • Phernergan

  • Gravol which is over the counter in Canada (not available in the USA)


Essential Oils That Have Worked

  • Peppermint oil has provided some relief – the littlest amount – but definitely not taken away a migraine


Other Techniques that Help

  • Ice packs, ice packs, ice packs

  • Stay as hydrated as possible by drinking a lot of water

  • Don’t let yourself go hungry (this can make a migraine worse)

  • Laying still and moving as little as possible to keep your blood pressure down

  • Stay away from anything acidic as much as possible but definitely while in the middle of one

  • Laying in a dark/blacked out room

  • Laying in a completely silent room

  • Just trying to take deep breaths through the pain and not cry (really difficult to do) because that will only make it worse

  • Limit movement to reduce blood pressure/pumping
