I'm so impressed with all the online support I received with my Amerge nightmare. I truly have wonderful migraine friends and I appreciate everyone who wrote me and left me comments.
Well, I considered everyone's advice and I called my neurologist. I had to leave a couple messages about the nightmare before I actually got through to her. Then when I did speak to her, I told her who I was and she said "What's up?" in a really casual tone which I thought was a little bizarre for a professional. I told her about the nightmare Amerge reaction and she said "Oh maybe you shouldn't be taking any triptans. Don't take the Amerge anymore." You think? I wanted to say to her.
She said I should try Midrin next, which I haven't tried and a couple online friends have recomended to me. She's calling in a prescription for me, and she said to let her know how I was doing in a few weeks time.
I'm thinking about trying the Midrin, but the instructions online say to take it at the start of a migraine. Since I'm having chronic daily migraines there is no real start or stop to them, just varying degrees of melon pain.
Then I read the Midrin side effects and I started freaking out, thinking about more trauma trying a new drug.
All this drug stuff is seriously giving me a headache just thinking about it.
