Aug 6, 2018 · Migraine for 28 days and counting HELP in Brain & Nervous System

Yes, we know it is a horrible experience! The last time we were admandant about no Compezene, but then they gave a drug in the same chemical family, and within minutes my son had the same reaction. Unfortunately, it lasted for a year, with random panic attacks. Upon investigation, we found the more exposure to the drug, the greater the risk for permanent neurological damage. His finally went away, thank goodness! His life is difficult enough without drug induced issues! At Mayo, the hospital oncology unit found this in young people so often, that their protocol "prohibits" the use of these drugs for nausea. They use something else. Glad you are aware of this danger.

My son has had episodes like that also. Had extreme dizziness, too. He had to go to ER for I vs because of severe vomiting for days.Beware of anyone giving Compezene for nausea or any drugs in that chemical family. They are often included in the ER migraine cocktail. They can have severe neurological side affects, especially in young men. The side effects can become permanent. It is described as extreme feelings of panic. "Fright and Flight". There are much safer drugs for nausea. With my son's current Botox injections, he has the long lasting and major severe migraines, less often. I am so sorry for your situation!

I had very similar experience, also at Mayo Clinic. One follow up and nothing more. It has been about 4 years now. Since physicians do not seem concerned, I have decided to ignore the information,for the most part, and live life without fear.

Thank you for the additional info. I feel an appointment with his neurologist is warranted.

Apr 15, 2018 · migraine type headache for more than 15 years! in Brain & Nervous System

My 22 year old son has suffered migraines for almost 18 years. He is treated at Mayo Clinic. Nothing helps very much, but he has some reduction in frequency with Botox injections. He has "transformed" migraines, where he has a constant headache pain level of. 3 to 5 all the time for most of those 18 years. You might want to investigate Botox.
