Dawn I have tried many different amounts and combinations of drugs.
Nothing has worked consistently until now.
Imitrex injections still work most of the time, but they are limited to 2 injections/24 hours. This doesn't help the other six or so attacks.
I am presently on 1250mg/day of Depakote taken half 12 hours apart, along with a prednisone burst of 80mg/day and tapering.
I will know more as I increase my depakote over the next week.
I use narcotics to treat the pain when there is no escape or relief.
It is good when your doctor believes you. But if you research, you will probably know more.
Good Luck,
