My insurance won’t cover Imitrex, so I have no clue if that one does.
But my doctor gave me Fioricet again, when I got it filled at the pharmacy I was told it will make my birth control ineffective if I take it while having a migraine =/…. What the hell!
I was never told this before.
Migraine is a symptom rather than a disease. There are various triggers, but the usual conduits are the nerves that go from the back of your neck, up the sides of your head and through your temporal lobes. When one of these goes into spasm, you get the classic symptoms of auras, sensitivity to light and one-sided headaches.
Try the hot and cold treatment. Put an ice pack on the back of your neck. (Yes I know it’s not your neck that hurts – humour me). Leave it on for 15 minutes. Take it off for 5, then put it back on for another 10. That should have cured the migraine but left you with the mother of stiff necks. Now put a hot compress on your neck for ten minutes.
This treats most migraines and doesn’t interfere with birth control or circulation, but it doesn’t make the drug companies rich. If it works. your migraines may be caused by a neck injury – see a chiropractor.
