Hello All:
I've just gone into my 5th week of CHs. I've been using Imitrex25mg tablets, Excedrin Migraine and hot water on my head. I've been having 4-5 a day during the last 2 weeks (ouch!) with Imitrex being the lifesaver.

Last night and today, I tried Feverfew and noticed a big change. The 30-45 minute,bad CHs haven't hit today thank God - instead I've had the "shadow" with me the whole day. It's better than the CHs but still hurts - just constant but not near as intense. I thought Feverfew took a while to build up so it may be be coincidence. In any case, what do you take for shadows? Excedrin and hot water don't seem to shake it -- and I'd feel like I was wasting Imitrex.
Any thoughts are appreciated.
