This is my first post on these boards...hi everyone! I'm one of those unlucky people that Imitrex has no effect on, except to make me nauseated. I've tried a bunch of meds (mostly taking suggestions from this website) with limited success. However, Mepergam (Meperidine HCl 50mg/Promethazine HCl 25mg) capsules (aka Demerol) work great, if I take two at the onset of a HA. Relief in about 20 minutes. It's a long 20 minutes, but the alternative is worse, as you know. Unfortunately, my doctor doesn't want to refill the prescription, for fear I'll become addicted. Same old same old. Since I don't have medical insurance, I don't have the option of shopping around. Just wanted to let y'all know that the Mepergam works for me, and if you haven't tried it, ask your doctor about it. :)
