The first med I had prescribed was Midrin.
It isn't very helpful except in the initial stages of a cycle when the attacks aren't so strong. At that time, if I take 2 at the very first twinge it seems to help. However, when the cycle really gets rolling, it won't help.
I learned about Imitrex in 96 and asked for it, I had to leave the office one day w/CH attack, and I drove straight to clinic and told them I wanted a shot..NOW. They did give me a shot, but I had to stay there for 45 minutes so they could be "watch me". Then the Dr. gave me a prescription.
( I also have migraines, and Midrin is more helpful for them.)
So, ask your dr. for other meds, if he won't honor your requests, fire him and get a new dr.
