  • Imetrix verses butalb/acet/caffeine
    I have taken both Imitrex and Butalb/acet/caffeine and I have to say that Imitrex works far better than the other one! The substitute I was given for Imitrex doesn't even touch my migraine pain.
  • Wheezing stopped after topamax sessesion
    Wheezing noted by primary physician in this non-smoker. Stopped Topamax per doctor's instruction. 48 hours later was examined by physician and noted that wheezing stopped.
  • Review: could lyrica cause intracranial pressure increased?
    One dose (75mg) caused severe head pain (increased intracranial pressure) and nausea.
  • Bad side effect of melatonin/imitrex use together
    I have taken melatonin for insomnia I've been experiencing recently (not a chronic condition). I haven't had any problems or interactions with my other regular medications while using the melatonin, other than drowsiness in the morning. Last night I had a migraine at bedtime, so took 50 mg. of imitrex, my usual dose for one. Since I haven't had one during the period I've been taking the melatonin I feel fairly confident in assuming that my symptoms were a result of the combination.



    I was awoken--thank god!--by choking on my own saliva and almost vomiting. I was able to go back to sleep--lying on my side to avoid aspirating anything--and was awoken again several hours later while I was wetting the bed!!! Incontinence has never been an issue for me (well, not since I was 3, I imagine) and I was really shocked. Although I immediately got up to clean the bed, I was so sleepy that I got back in (on the dry side :) and slept for another 4 hours.



    Although, as I mentioned, I think it's likely that the problem was the result of an interaction with the Imitrex, which has a soporific effect, I'll stop using the melatonin to be safe!
  • My reaction to talking sumatriptan for the first time.
    after 10 minutes of taking the sumatriptan tablet i got all of the symptoms i stated and from those i developed a rare movement disorder called 'Dystonia' that has affected my right foot making me unable to walk and my right hand making me unable to write.

  • From this study (16 hours ago):

  • I have a history of pituitary brain tumors (one as an infant, surgically removed and treated with chemo, and one at the age of 7 treated through radiation). I had another brain tumor (miningeoma behind the eye nerves) that has led to these latest bouts of headaches and my rethinking of my health. I have always struggled with weight and am on every hormone replacement due to the effect on my pituitary. I am currently on a mostly vegan diet, which I have generally enjoyed but am starting to reevaluate.
