Imitrex and children

Common Questions and Answers about Imitrex and children

imitrex

though much of what he has to offer is venom and bile, and that is no fun, that little good part is really seductive. he is funny, and smart, and can be very sweet. and, as ive sed, his youth is contagious. a little too youthful, but that's aite I aint like gonna nickel and dime him on that. anyway I miss him. sometimes I even miss him yelling at me. ok, I don't. I think and he's very beautiful. althought egregiously thin.
I've tried so many different migraine meds and the only one that has had any effect are the Imitrex and Fioricet. Willing to listen to any suggestions.
I had a jet-ski accident about 10 years ago that caused the T12 and 13 injury. Since then other than having 3 children I've been healthy. Any advice would be much appreciated.
Since he has tried the usual stuff of midrin, imitrex and zorig, I think that he needs to be admitted for DHE treatment. Now, I haven't examined your son so what I have just said must be taken into context. Before we would do this treatment with DHE, he needs a full work up to rule out any structural CNS source of his headache. I am assuming that this has been done and your physician is sure that he doesn't have a mass, stroke, tumor, etc.
He's 70lbs and the doctor gave him half of the adult dose-1.25mg and we didn't exceed 5 mg in 24 hours. He may have vomited the last dose. I was under the impression that migraines lasted 4-72 hours. Now I am very worried about the length of this headache. I thought for certain it would be gone. When the doctor's office opens at 9am today, I think they are going to recommend a pediatric neurologist and possible admission. Could I have your opinion?
One association between migraine and epilepsy is that in some children migraine patients have epileptiform discharges (electrical activity which suggests the tendency to have seizures) in the occpital lobe. Often in patients with intermittent neurologic symptoms both migraine and seizures need to be ruled out. Lastly, some patients with epilepsy will have a migraine like headache after their seizures.

Last one felt past jaw joint and in teeth. Usually more mastoid and not TMJ like. Last one started this summer and continued even post Toradol. Finally somewhat better after phenergan and Dilaudid IV. About six months before last big lesion, eye doctor noted that eyes were funny in that the discs were not pale or cupped, but the retinal vessels were swollen such as is seen in nerve deterioration.

The problem for me is that endocarditis is such a devastating disease with such a high mortality and morbidity, and the risk of taking an antibitoic is so small that its impossible to compare the risk benefit of the two. There really shouldnt be any significant restriction on exercise from what you describe. While defensive medicine does lead to over testing, I think most physicians still try to do the right thing overall for the patients without too much regard for getting sued.
I got a shot of Torridol that didn't work and a prescription for 100 mg Imitrex. The Imitrex didn't even touch the migraine and I wasn't happy with the side effects. I did a follow up and he sent me to a "Comprehensive Headache Clinic" in my area to be seen by a neurologist. I saw the doctor for the first appt and she put me on Zonisamide as a migraine preventative and Maxalt-MLT 10 mg as a rescue medication as well as ordering some labs, an MRI and an MRA. All tests came back normal.
I even ended up in the emergency room after my first dose of Imitrex, where I was diagnosed with tension headaches. I am 18 and overweight.. Female. I have the pulsatile tinnitus in my left ear and all the visual disturbances you described. Is this anything I should see the doctor about? I have a dull achy pain inside my left ear with an occasional sharp stabbing pain in the same spot.
Well, I am 7 weeks 5 days today, and still just very very tired. I dont want to do much of anything. I came down with a complicated migraine on Saturday while taking our children to Discovery Center. Once we got home my honey let me take a nap while he took care of the girls and did some stuff around the house. I felt better once I got up, but the migraine came back on Sunday and wont go away. Bummer thing is the Extra Strength Tylenol isnt enough to make it any better. Ugh!!!
We all have to function in our lives and take care of other children and ourselves. I honestly feel that if vicodin were THAT bad our doctors couldn't and wouldn't put it in the hands of pregnant women! We just have to be smart about it. It is amazing to me that we ALL have the same concerns about our unborn children. We're asking ourselves the same questions. I already have a 2 year old and as it goes, guilt and motherhood go hand in hand.
I am in that same boat you were in, however I am 46 and so was not interested in having anymore children not at my age. I am 7 mths and I am doing my best to be off of the kolonopin by the end of January and pray she isn't effected by the meds and is not born addicted to it. Would you mind sharing how everything turned out? I pray okay!!!!!! Thank you.

I have struggled with my weight all of my life . I am now 35, 3 children and when i was diagnosed manic-depressive i was on prozac, wellbutrin and taking hi levels of prescription weight loss pills. I was losing my mind but i wasn't losing any weight! When my Psychatrist decided to try me on Topamax it was because of my anieity over my weight gain with the standard mood stabilizers. Within these past two years I have lost 38 pounds taking this medicine.
i am 28 yrs old and my husband and children could not understand what happened to their mother. the first week i did not experience very bad side effects the usual nausea headache stuff. then the second week very bad moodiness, depression, anxiety. friday night i was rushed to the ER due to a severe panic attack. i thought i was going to die. i have never had anything so awful happen to me. now that i have read others comments everything is adding up.
Get the help and stay with us here. I'll keep praying for you Jenny, you and your children and I'll pray that your husband reconsiders his position.
She was an honors student with many friends and her life has been turned upside-down. Morphine and toradal have been the only medicines which have given her relief. She has had two lumbar punctures, one CT, 2 MRI's and recently a colonoscopy and endoscopy for what appear to be the beginning of ulcers. The first mri was normal but the 2nd showed evidence of lesions in the white front matter which indicate the possibility of a migaine, ADEM, Lyme's, among other conditions.
i just wish someone could give me some answers so i can move on with my life and be able to take care of my children and be able to do the things i use to love to do. if anyone knows of anyway to really get rid of the dizziness please let me know i am willing to try anything. thanks for all the help and support.
When you drastically cut the calorie intake you also alter the nutrients and your body goes in survival mode and the essential organs will get the nutrients and the others (hair, skin, nails) will get the left over.
(I have a husband serving overseas, an 18 year old that just pretty much threw his future away, and two other more grown children, mix this in with an insane work load right now and all my health issues and I would say yeah just a little bit of stress)
I cannot even make my own bed or sweep my floor without some kind of pain control, so i started taking the methadone just to get ready to go to work, then i take more to work, then i take more to go home and take care of three small children, then... well you get the picture. I dont even know how i can stop this, i'm in so much pain, but i dont wand to be dependent on anybody never mind any chemical!!!
I had little to no liver damage going in to tx which left me wondering how long to wait till I tx. Luckily for me I was able to take a little time and buy a home and get settled in to it beforehand. But, as much as I wanted for life to slow down and give me the 'PERFECT' time frame to tx.... it never happened. We had the family all prepped and I was ready to start when my husband got called away for an extended time.
If you have not already taken a daily maximum dose of your Imitrex, then they might give you an Imitrex Injection at the hospital and that can sometimes stop the headache. Always let the doctors and nurses know if you have or haven't taken your maximum dose already. Pain killers delivered by IV can also be effective in either stopping the migraine or dulling the pain.
I would see a neurologist. For my migraines I take topamax daily and imitrex when I actually am starting to get a headache. There are many headaches that are allergy related and sleep related that mimic migraines. Just my experience.
I had an ER doc tell me once that I wasn't doing enough for migraines (prevention before imitrex) and yelled at me for drug seeking after 4 days of non stop vomiting and pain, needing pain shot. Couldn't hold the pain meds down. ON and on....My husband had an appeal defending a pain management dr, for giving meds. He had his licence taken after the pt. was going to different dr's. NOT his fault.
So how did your problems and children turn out?
My grandfather and my mom also get these migraines. Two of my children do also. None of us see the same doctor and none of us have ever found anything that works.
