Triptans??

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hello all,

I take Triptans for my HM, I find Naratriptan works best for me however as I get miraines everyday I know it is not safe to use everyday due to rebound Migraines but I take them when I am feeling really unwell. Can you tell me how often it is safe to take them?

Thankyou, Robyn smile

    Great you will get even more benefit from the increase in Flunarizine Robyn!  I find that if I do get a hemeplegic migraine they tend only to last a couple of days now.

    Is that a tablet form of triptan Robyn?

    The thing is everybody has a different reason why they get hemaplegic migraine, classic migraine or cluster headache, and the treatment is also different.  I have had nerve block injections in the head which only lasted a few days, before my headaches returned. Surgery is not needed for me at the moment.  It has worked well for you Nicola and thats great and I wish you all the best, but what works for one wont for others.

      Yes I totally understand that, but my neurologist said that botox wasnt an option for my particular conditions, so the op that you had wont be available to me.  Deep brain stimulation as been suggested to me, if all the options for drugs fail.  I have very few left open to me I can tell you

      Oh I do wish you the best of luck. Maybe it's worth getting a second opinion ? It's horrible having to suffer for years and years. I do know how you feel, I've been through everything myself. Don't ever be fobbed off.

      Thanks for the advice and well wishes Nicola, I will bear that in mind.  I am not the kind of person to be fobbed off though believe me.  I do my own reseach all the time and would know if they were telling me rubbish
