looking for help with my grown daughter migraines
Hi mallen10! I take Propanylol (sp.) and Nortripolyene (sp) daily to control my migraines and Naproxen when I do get one which hasn't been for several months now. Does your daughter get them on a regular basis? I received whiplash on a roller coaster ride several years ago that I believe contributed to them and tinnitus in my left ear. I would suggest a MRI of the brain and neck. My neck has discs that are pinching the nerves that also affect my left shoulder blade. All the best in supporting her. My mom is a true blessing when the migraines are too much for me to take care of my children/myself. God bless.
Hi, I also suffer from migraines, although mine have been under control for a few years now. I have been seeing a neurologist on a regular basis and he has been wonderful. I am taking Topamax on a regular basis to prevent the migraines and zomig nasal spray at the onset of a migraine to help get rid of one when I get one. I have not had to use the zomig at all in years. Ibuprofen has been enough to get rid of any headache that occurs. I was on 300mg of Topamax at one time, but am now down to 50mg a day. I barely get migraines at all anymore. I wish you and your daughter the best and hope you can find the best treatment, too.
Have you tried antidepressants?
