I was having one devil of a time trying to see any posts or to make any posts, and finally I just gave up, went to lunch, came back and here you folks are! (Makes me wonder who was really gone LOL) Anyway, the problem: Preventative meds - 1800 mg. lithium (level below therapeutic range), 175 mg. topamax. Abortives: 4L oxygen, amerge, and demerol & phenegren. Preventives quit, abortives waste of time, rebound HA from demerol so that does not work, tried just phenegen and it gives a break of about 2 hours before they ROAR again.
I have call into Neuro since this is the 6th day and I am not sure we can make it to day 7, but does anyone have any suggestions for preventive & abortive? Just not ready for shroom treatment yet, will not say never, but not right now. Besides, need it now.
Has been on lithium & nortryptalene combo before, has tried imitrex pills, ergostat, lidocane drip, and much more I can not remember off top of head.
Any suggestions would be appreciated as I know neuro will ask what I think we should do.
Thanks you folks and hope your days are better than ours right now, and some day they will stay good.
