Greetings all. It has been quite some time since I have visited this post. Mostly because I have been pain free since last June (2001).
But then came January. It has been a month of nothing less than pure hell. The Depakote was not working like it used to, and the Imitrex supply was quickly vanishing.
I went to the Doc to get a refill on the Imitrex, and he took me off of the Depakote, and put me on Prednisone. At first, I was very aprehensive about taking Prednisone. But we all know that when the pain is bad enough, you'll do just about ANYTHING to make it quit.
So I started on the Prednisone. The first day showed no results. I still had 7 headaches that day. The second day, I only had 2. I am now on day three, and I cannot believe it!!! I actually got a full night's sleep last night! AND, I have only had 1 headache so far today. Pretty darn good considering I normally wake between 1:00 and 3:00 AM and start my day with my LEAST favorite friend.
I don't know if the Prednisone will work for everyone, but if you have not yet tried it, you should. It has helped me.
Best wishes and many days of pain free happiness to all!
