- 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!
- Transient psychosis in indomethacin
I had taken indomethacin infrequently for years for joint pain but never for more than 2 weeks in a row. One night, when I had been taking it daily for about 2 weeks, I had a bout of psychosis approximately 1/2 hour after ingesting the indomethacin at bedtime. I just waited it out, and in about 5-6 hours the effect wore off and I've been fine since. I had never had a bout of psychosis before that. (I've never taken it again.)

Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I have headaches almost daily and I'm not sure if they're attributed to meds or not. I have a history of migraine headaches but never as frequent, long-lasting and severe as now. They are sometimes preceded w an aura, though not always.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
Can dulera cause migraine with aura?
From this study (3 weeks ago):
After almost 8 years suffering these symptoms, and repeated increase of dose, I went off levothyroxine accidentally when I ran out at a time when I couldn't refill. Within one week vertigo and migraines had ceased almost entirely, and after a month off it my libido began to return. I had severe bouts of vertigo several times a day, migraines 5+ days a week, and NO libido for the last 3 years.
