My advice is to contact your Neurologist asap. Migraine headaches shouldn't last that long. Topamax (Topiramate) helped me for a short time with the migraines I had.. But coming off of the Topiramate was the best thing I did after 2 years. There are so many side effects, (depending on the person), and it can cause Kidney stones after quitting. Rizatriptan is strictly for Migraine headaches. Talk to your Neurologist and be sure to do your homework first.

If your epilepsy is from a TBI,then it may be possible to discuss with your Neurologist about a medication called Topomax. It is a migraine and anticonvulsant. It is one of the newer medications, but it has less negative side effects.

Thank you for your answers. I finally got hold of my neorologist. He was on leave. He said I must use Gen-Payne. Only if I have a migraine or headache. Over-the-counter medicine. It worked.

Thank you Michelle for answering my question. At the moment I tutor 2 girls. Homeschooling classes. The one comes to my house and the other one is over zoom. I can drive. I lost my job due to the covid pandemic and not because of my epilepsy.
