In tears/ went to a new neurologist that my primary sent me to. He said he was going to start me on topomax and calan but he would talk with my primary and get her to start the meds. I went to my primary office and was not allowed to talk to her. I was given only calan and told by a rude nurse that if it did not help in 1 month they may try topomax. The neuro had told me my primary would sit down and go over my meds but Ithis did not happen. My primary has always been considerate and understanding so I don't know what is going on. After treating me for clusters for over 12 years, I guess she is ready to give up . I tried calan years ago but alone it did not work/ it helped some. I have been taken off my Imitrex/Zomig because of increased bp and pulse. I am at the point I can not deal with this pain anymore and will take my chances with the imitrex. Why is it that the medical profession has the least knowledge on clusters and the least understanding. And I say this because I am an R.N. Do not know how much longer I can hang in here. I was so excited and hopeful over trying the topomax but now I hit a deadend again.
