Thanks I was going to book an appt to see the gp about them. At least I know theres something else I can take.
They are so delibitating(sp) that I dread them and because I dread getting them I spend my life worrying about having an attack. It doesnt help that my work has a strict sickness policy and any more than 3 instances and you get a warning. Im on my 2nd instance already from these migraines. So I want to try and nip them in the bud.
I take 1.5mg of Pizotifen every day to prevent migraines. I get them twice a month for 7 days at a time if I don't take the Pizotifen. They have reduced the attacks to maybe once every couple of months, and then if I take Propain Plus (OTC drug) then that seems to work. My mum had to take Pizotifen as well, and she never had another migraine while on them.
See your GP.
Oh yes, I did try some "wafers" from the GP, but I never got the hang of taking them just as an attack was starting, but a friend of mine swears by them.
Think my prescription is the same as Imigran - it was costing too much to buy it over the counter but it works! My work has a strict sickness policy too - local authority. I find stress brings mine on mostly, and hormones, and too much chocolate or not enough to eat/being over tired or a combination. I hope it works for you
