My Neuro last Monday during my office visit with him said he did not like my BP being 159/95 and pulse 106....and that is low compared to what it has been since that time...The only meds I take are hormone, cholestoral (low dose), Synthroid (thyroid med) .15 mg.,Verapamil 360 mg (as preventive of CH) and at night I take the Motion Sickness pills instead of Amitriptyline (because I didn't want to wake up feeling like a zombie)...I take the O2 and Imitrex when I have a, I don't feel like I am on so much medicine....I am on no pain pills..pain pills don't help during an attack anyway...I have the DHE45 Spray and Maxmalt...Maxmalt didn't work, so don't use it anymore...I am too afraid to use the DHE45-Spray with a 7-10 afraid it won't work and then I wouldn't be able to use the Imitrex within a 24-hr period...can't take that chance yet....I usually am nocturnal and mine are already a 10 by the time I wake up between 2-5 a.m.....

The Neuro said last Monday that there wasn't one thing I was taking that would bring my BP or Pulse up, except that maybe I was still overmedicated on the synthroid...we did blood test Monday morning to test that again...No results yet...

Thanks for your advise Judi....anything might help...The meds I am taking, I need to be taking...I don't feel I abuse them at all...Just afraid the Imitrex might be doing some hidden damage...especially of how I feel following the Imitrex Injection...think I am really going to die...

Love...A Dame
