I’ve had migraines every couple of months for about two years. I went to the doctor and he gave me some ‘sumatriptan’ tablets, which are ok, but I was wondering if there is anything else you can do to ease migraine pain. I probably shouldn’t take any other drugs along with the sumatriptan.
I use 4head for minor headaches but it just doesn’t touch migraines! Please help!
You can take other drugs along with the triptan. I don’t know what dosage you’re taking, but you can take a 100mg tablet then repeat in an hour if it’s not working. I do the imitrex self injector and is much more effective than the pills. Other than triptans, I take a medicine called Indocin, which is a suppository (I know, yuck) that really works. I take an Indocin and a phenergan (I get nausea), then repeat the indocin in an hour. If that still doesn’t do it, I do an Imitrex shot. If that doesn’t work, I take an oxycodone and sleep it off. You may just try another triptan (Zomig, Maxalt, etc) and see if that works better.
