headaches in pregnancy



So I have been having some really bad headaches lately. Yesterday it was a migraine. I had to call my Dr. since tylenol is a  joke and does nothing except damage your liver. He called me in a Rx for tylenol 3 with codine. It helped but I hate taking that stuff. By now knowing pregnant women get migraines you would think they would have a medicine out there safe fer us that gets rid of the migraine without codine. I love my imitrex and wish i could use it during pregnancy.
Maybe one day someone will come up with something...

I thought I'd drop a line & hope your meds work well for you!  I hear you about getting some pretty nasty headaches.  I'll ask my husband (a pharmaciest) why in the heck those darned drug companies get busy and make something a little more potent but not narcotic-like for pain for pregnant women!

I wouldn't worry about taking the tylenol w/codeine - your dr wouldn't have prescribed it for you if it weren't safe in my opinion.  I hope your headaches get better soon!  My middle daughter suffers from them and like you loves, loves, loves her imitrex.
