    What do you all take for your migraines? I get them all the time along with my FM pains. Help?

    GRLNPAIN:

    If your having really bad migraines that you think are migraines I would talk to the doctor first.

    There are many meds on the market that stop migraines as they are starting such as Imitrex and there are antidepresants that help with them such as amitrptaline.

    If they are interfereing with your life and you are having sensitivity to noise, light, nausea I would see the doctor rather than try to self treat.

    I hope this was helpful,

    Hi Grlnpain

    I used amitriptyline at night to help me sleep which has cut down my migraines a lot. When I do get a migraine I have imitrex which helps if I take it before the migraine becomes full blown.

    I have tried every preventive there is,I have tried every 'new' abortive druug there is. The ONLY thing I have foudn that helps ME is, Imitrex injections for my major hormonal migraines and Amerge for the moderate ones.For the daily ones I ignore.I have a combination of causes.
