bring on the crazy pills

I went back to the doctor yesterday for my month long migraine and we talked about a lot of different options.  He said the pain management clinic was really into pushing more drugs and they are mostly narcotic drugs.  I don't really want to go that route, especially since I can't just stop working.  We talked about accupuncture-hey, I have some pins and needles around here :0 and botox (make me look 25 again).

But, for now, he had me increase the crazy pills I take already.  They are really anti-depressants that supposedly work on migraines.  I'm not so sure.  I think they are just another way of appeasing me until I can't take it anymore and come back for another appointment.   I will give almost anything a try.

I have these same kind of crazy migraines..it has been eight years of them at this intensity...my neurologist put me on this cocktail and it helps alot but I still have them pretty bad: Magnesium, B2, CoQ10, diclofinac, amytriptilene, and atenelol all really for the migraines. Good luck with what they gave you and if it is a miracle cure, please share!
