Hi Im looking for some advice. Ive recently been diagnosed with migraines. Never had a problem with headaches but for just over a month now ive been getting horrific left sided headache and blindness in right eye approx once a week leaving me unable to do anything or speak properly and no painkillers work.
My gp has started me on pizotifen to take on a night and sumatriptan for when I feel an attack starting. This was 6 days ago and Ive already had to take sumatriptan 3 times. Is this normal? Ive been give 8 tablets to last a month. It just seems a bit excessive that ive had 3 potential migraines about to start in 6 days.
My gp said to have 1 pizotifen and if I need to I can step it up to 3 a night for prevention but I dont know how long I should leave it before I step it up.
Any help or advice would be much appreciated. Thanks
