Migraines

Migraines

I have been waking up with horrible migraines like 5 out of the 7 days a week. I take Lamictal and Topamax. I know Topamax is supposed to help with headaches so that's weird. My Dr. had me do a study to make sure I wasn't have seizures in my sleep and I'm not. Does anyone else have this issue?

Im on Keppra for my seizure, And I'm amitriptyline for my headaches. I used to be like you 7 days when I got on amitriptyline and I still have them but they're more easy to handle

I was waking up to really bad headaches recently. My doctor did a sleep study and found I had apnea, my oxygen level at one point went down to 70% during the night. I now have a BiPap machine and have no headaches at all anymore. And BTW, I take Dilantin and Topomax.

Amitriptyline never help me. Botox quit working. So now I’m on Aimovig once a month injections. They work like a miracle drug! I would get migraines every day, but now I hardly ever get them.

I never could take topamax. Bad side effects for me. I take Aimovig now. It works wonders for me. I hardly ever get migraines now.
