Tried "Search" and didn't see any positives about Depakote. Just started trying 3 days ago 250mg twice daily. Any one had any success with the stuff?
Into 11th week of episode. At least one CH per night 7 to 8 on "Kip Scale", 1.5 to 2 hrs in duration. Been trying Prednisonne and Verapamil 240 mg with Zomig 2.5 for pain. Wasn't working and I ended up usually eating two 2.5 Zomig per attack anyway.
After visit to doc, doubled up on Verapamil to 480mg and started taking 5 mg Zomig for pain.
Number and frequency of headaches the same HOWEVER, 5 mg Zomig tablets working wonders on the pain!
Hoping higher dose of Verapamil and Depakote can break this episode.
