Hi all, I am in need again. Life is still sucking in Central PA, after our visit to neuro, he put hubby on 120 mg Varaprimil, and a histamine blocker in addition to 1800mg lithium(level at 1.3), 200 mg Topamax, Stadol NS, Amerge at bedtime, Ambien if needed at bedtime, phenegren shots or suppositories every 6 hours as needed. Also uses o2. This cycle has been going on for more than a month now, every day bouts with the beast. It has gotten better, and unlike past cycles where all the headaches occur from late afternoon through early morning, they were occuring most actively during the day. Now since the improvement, they are coming at night again. He has decreased the number of ch's from 8 a day to 2 a night, and if he takes the amerge the night is usually uneventful. After this long he is absolutely tired of all the medications and wants to try and do without some, but when he does the beast starts roaring. He feels that they will never stop this time.
I would also like to ask if anyone is able to tell me what of all this medication he would need to be without to attempt shrooms.
Also, in the long run I believe the neuro will want to keep him on the lithium, topamax, varapramil & histamine blocker as preventative medication.
Also may include the fact that he smokes, and this is the only vice he has not eliminated, anyone aware of any of his medications that would be majorly impacted due to this?
