First off, I woke with only the faintest of headaches this morning but mid morning I started to feel Mr. M take hold again. So I was nice and mildly migraine riddled for my afternoon appointment with my Neurologist.
Long story short. I am going up to 200mg of Topamax per day over the next few weeks. Yay! hmmm. Maybe not so yay... lets see how this stuff messes with me. : P
Side effects may include short term memory loss.

Also, I am giving abortives another shot... Up the nose this time. I got some samples of Zomig in a nasal spray. Mostly for the migraines, as I have mentioned before, I figure by the time I know I am having a really bad cluster, I am 1/4 of the way done and pills of course, take too long to work so that is pointless. Imitrex injections make my heart race and cause bad rebounds for me, so that has been on my avoid list for years also. But I haven't tried the nose applied method, I don't think it was available back when I was really trying all the medications to abort clusters.
Still uneasy about Imitrex... I opted to try the Zomig. If it works on the migraines then I will get a prescription and I will have it on hand for bad cluster attacks as well.
