silent migraines
1 Reply RSS
My neurologist tells me I have migraines. I generally do not have headaches, if I do they are mild. Nothing more than annoying, really. The thing I went to him for is numbness and tingling in my extremities, and in my face. It scares me, to the point of anxiety. It starts in my hands/feet, sometimes makes it all the way to my elbows/calves. He prescribed topiramate, commonly called Topamax, in increasing doses. The symptoms gradually faded, but today all of a sudden are worse. I've been taking the medicine, I'm still a week or so from my follow up, and it's pretty impossible to get in otherwise. Anyone else have "silent migraines"? ## Hello, Spiderdaisy! How are you doing? Yes, those are the symptoms of silent migraines and the medication may not prevent them all, pl... ...

Generally, it takes about a month for your body to get used to a medication and for the side effects to start tapering off in severity.

migraines and topamax
2 Replies RSS
I just recently started taking this for treating 6 to 8 migraines a month. I was using the max amount of meds every month for migraines and in constant pain and usually going in around every 3 to 4 months for a shot. If this sounds familiar you may want to try this drug. If was prescribed 25 mg. for a week which I have just made it though and now am on my second week of 50 mg. My biggest side effect is being tired. I am taking both pills at night instead of one in the morning and one at night. I am hoping to only have to take 50 mg, but we will see. So far so good, but I will up date on progress. ## I am addicted to Restyl since many years. I take 2 pills of 0.5mg every night. I also take Topamac 50 for migraine since last 4 months. Now since the last 7 days I decided to gradually reduc... ...

MIGRAINES ON VACATION

I have suffered for a long, long time the Evil, Painful, MIGRAINES. Back in the day, I was taken to the hospital to get a Demerol Shot. They don't use Demerol any more. as years went on I was taken to the hospital with migraine and was given some kind of medicine for my nausa, and my Migraine. I never stayed awake long enough to find out. Found out it was morphine. We move through the years and I've been Mexico where I had a Huge Migrain. My daring Husband ventured forth to find a Medication, in a strange country, only English language. He's my hero :) he came back with something called Neo-Melubrina (Metamizol sodico) suppositories. OMG! amazing med. No need to swallow anything if vomiting. I want to find some more of this product, but have been unsuccessful in our shopping... ...

Statins and Migraines
1 Reply RSS
I was on a Statin for the past 5 years and have suffered with migraines for the past 15 years. For many reasons I decided to take myself off the Statin 2 years ago. I attributed my decrease in migraines by changing jobs and reducing stress. My doctor recently convinced me to start back on a Statin. I've been on it for the past month and have noticed for the past week I've had constant migraine pain. So I've decided to live with the POSSIBLE risk of heart disease rather than the debilitating pain from daily migraines. ## Hello, Even! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem you had. First, I'd like to clear up a misconception, if you have high cholesterol, it isn't just heart disease that you're at risk of, you're actually at risk of a full heart attack, b... ...

topomax for migraines

I started 50 mg of Topamax a week ago for migraines. How soon should I start seeing results if it is going to help? So far, the only side effect I have had is some numbness in my feet/hands and carbonated beverages tasting a little different. I was also curious if anyone has had success with topamax helping generalized pain like back or joint pain? ## I was on it fot 4 months for migraine prevention. I had tingling feet off anf on with it. My concern now is that I have double vision from it. I was tsking 25mg/day. ## @Melli, According to a drug monograph for Topamax (topiramate), it may take up to several weeks to start seeing significant changes in your symptoms.. so you may just have to give it a little more time before you can really decide if this medication is even right for you.

Just started Viibryd day 6 at 10mg, went off cold turkey 40 mgs of Prozac, and 50 mgs of Amitriptilene (spelled wrong)..I have been in hell..I'm lightheaded and feeling very aggitated, I kind of feel like I'm crawling out of my skin..But this is the worst part and my main question..I average 4 to 5 migraines a week and can usually get rid of them within 3 to 5 hours..I now have a migraine morning noon and night, has any one else while taking Viibryd, has your migraines increased...Thanks!! ## At this point, it's actually difficult to say whether the migraines may be from the Viibryd, or from stopping the other medications abruptly.

CAN'T TELL YET HOW WELL IT'S WORKING FOR THE MIGRAINES, BUT SIDE EFFECTS ARE BLURRED VISION & EXACERBATION OF PARKINSON-LIKE SYMPTOMS, ESP. LOSS OF BALANCE. ## I don't know how old you are, but my doctor wants me to start Cymbalta for Fibromyalgia pain.

Tamoxifen cured my migraines
3 Replies RSS
I just started Tamoxifen 10 days ago after lumpectomy and radiation for ER+. Breast cancer. Clear margins, sentinel node negative. My oncologist recommended radiation and IV chemo for one year. I agreed to radiation, refused chemo. Arimidex recommended, I agreed and started taking as soon as I finished 6 weeks of radiation. I was unable to tolerate the joint pain and bone aches, and the very frequent and severe hot flashes so I stopped Arimidex after 3 months. That was 3 years ago. At my last oncology visit, my doctor recommended I start Tamoxifen just to be safe, as I have no signs or symptoms of recurrence. I reluctantly agreed to give it a try and started it 10 days ago. The amazing thing about starting tamoxifen is that my almost daily migraines have suddenly stopped. I have had sev... ...

Been taking xarelto for 9months after p e in lungs noticed fatigue right away but now having migraines and recent blood test shows raised alt on the liver function test. Has anyone else had these symptoms. My doctor doesn't think they are related to xarelto but I have my doubts. ## Hi Tina. Im Kelly. I had PE also. Tried Xarelto because my disabilities & the fact that I'm a single mum to 2 primary school aged very very active little lads made it difficult to get to my appointments to monitor my blood when I was on warfarin.

I have been trying for something to fix my migraines for years. After trying preventatives my neurologist went to narcotics.

Migraines associated to Benlysta use?
9 Replies RSS
I am going for my fourth Benlysta treatment tomorrow and although I've noticed huge differences in my mobility and joint junctions, I've been getting really bad migraines everyday around 3-4 in the afternoon. It's the oddest thing, because before starting treatment I would have migraines 1-2 times a year. It's really affecting my family because I am now in bed every night with migraine pain or throwing up. One thing gets better but I still feel debilitated by the treatment. And advice?? ## I should clarify that I take Benlysta injections to help with my Lupus symptoms. I am the first person at my clinic to try this medication and could really use to connect with someone who is trying it as well. Thank u for your time if u have anything to offer, it's appreciated. ## ... ...

Nortriptyline for migraines, insomnia...
2 Replies RSS
I just started 25mg nortriptyline for migraine prevention. I was previously on amitriptyline for them and it worked so well, but I was a zombie, couldn't wake up in the morning and had gained 10 pounds. I was always hungry and never felt full. I am hoping that the noritriptyline will have less side effects (at least that's what my doctor tells me). Day 2 of not sleeping. I take the pill before bed and that must be the problem. Does anyone take it in the morning? I'm a little worried that taking it in the morning will still keep me up that night. Also, is 25mg a little high for a starting dosage? ## Hello, JaneCat! How are you? As to your starting dosage, you're not actually starting, you're just switching from one to the other, so you'd not start it at the same d... ...
