migraine

Hello. I've been suffering from sever migraines for years but recently they have gotten worse.. For a week now I've had a constant pain. Ive tried imitrex and that hadn't help. I took a pain med n it help for a little while. But the pain is back ten fold. Is that because of the pain med.? Any suggestions on migraine medications?

Once a migraine attack has started it is very hard to end. You need strong drugs for that. Do you usually have migraine attacks that last this long?

Maybe you should see a doctor?

Welcome to the Migraines & Headaches Comunity cjoyy.

I, myself have worked my way through many of the Triptan meds, including Imitrex. Right now I use Amerge and it works most of the time.
Have patience. It takes time. It is a trial and error game trying to find the exact med or combination of meds to hep you. If you haven't had any luck after one month then you need to let your doctor know as he/she may want to switch to something else. Good luck and keep us posted!
