    anyone here suffer from migraines?

    if so, how do you deal with them at work? and what medications are you taking?

    at first my doctor prescribed fioricet but those were not working at all...2 hours later the headache would come right back with avengeance....now he has switched me to maxalt and says if that doesn't work he is going to have to switch me to something like percocet or vicodin....now these drugs are addictive and knocks you out...so i try not to take them when i am at work...and limit their use to when i am at home only...but now my 650mg of acetominophen don't seem to be doing the trick anymore....

    does anyone know any good remedies for migraines?

    i try my best not to rely on medication...i hate taking pills..when i first started getting them, i would just go to sleep to help ease the pain, but as soon as i woke up and got out of bed, the pain started right back up again....now i can't even get to sleep without the aid of medication...

    i mostly take acetominophen because i really am afraid of becoming addicted to the stronger stuff

    Maxillan is good... it makes you drowsy and loopy but it works.

    damn you must get that real bad...

    I suffer from migraines but my attacks have become infrequent .... not sure why but that's good. I used to get migraines at least 3 times a week when I was in community college. I would take 500 to 100mg of ibuprophen and just go to sleep. Sometimes it would be so bad that I'd puke. Now I still take ibuprohen but 250mg seems to work, that, a dark quiet room and sleep does the trick.
