i have been taking different triptans for over 20 years. Right now I have Almogran (Alomtriptan) but it's become less effective so for e.g I have just had a migraine for three days and had to take 4 Almogran over that period.
they used to take away the pain and sickness quite quickly and sometimes it would not return or at least the pain would be kept in check for approx 12 hours before i had to take another one and so on. Now the tablet lasts only up to 6-8 hours and sometimes don't work to ease the pain at all unless I take something like ibruprofen on top.
Over the years I have had imigran and maxalt melt, the imigran side effects were too severe and I had to stop the maxalt when I started taking propranolol.
Anyone out there that can recommend another triptan that works for them? I am going to GP tomorrow morning so any recommendations would be helpful
