Went to the Doc yesterday and she put me on Dexamethasone. I had asked for prednisone but she said this was better. Let me tell ya, I had a CH at 8:30 p.m. last night and NOT ONE SINCE!!! I have only taken 3 of these tiny pills but so far so good. I have had the beginning signs a few times last night and today but nothing has gone past a one on the scale. I am so happy!!
Also, just wanted to plug my doc as a great lady - I complained slightly about the cost of Imitrex and she gave me the entire supply of samples in her office (about 20 injections)!! Saved me a ton of money. Hopefully, the Dexamethasone will continue to help but if not, the imitrex is much appreciated.
Anybody else ever tried the Dexamethasone? They are tiny white tablets - 4 mg. I'm taking 2 a day for 14 days, then 1 a day for 7. My fingers are crossed!!
Have a great day everyone!! I'm at almost 19 hours now pain free and I feel so much better. The soreness is almost even gone from such a long break in this cycle.
