Common Questions and Answers about Can i take sumatriptan with ibuprofen


Avatar n tn For the past 18 months/2 years I keep getting pain down the right side of my nose with flickering pain round my right eye. As with my migraine I often wake up with this pain but it can begin at any time. My nasal passages are clear, no discharge. Usual analgesia, aspirin, paracetamol, ibuprofen, do not work but I have found that sumatriptan stops the pain. The episodes of this pain are more frequent and I hesitate to use sumatriptan but have to as the pain just becomes worse and worse.
Avatar m tn But it works every time for me now. I take a large dose of Folic Acid (Folate) before I drink. Usually 1-5mg. You can buy 5mg tablets at the chemist. They are for pregnant women. It has really changed my life. For the record, I'm 36-year-old male from Australia. I hope it works for you guys too! All the best.
Avatar n tn Pain Level 4-7 Headache with pain centralized in the front upper right of temple, spreading over and around forehead to left temple but pain less intense in these areas, 3-5 Visual Disturbance, difficult to describe but includes difficulty “zoning in” on objects, makes it difficult to read and hard to focus on the “big picture”, school nearly impossible As for treatment, so far I have tried Ibuprofen - No effect Naproxen Sodium - No effect Excedrin - No effect Toradol Shot - No effect Sumatri
Avatar m tn We are currently on Sumatriptan/Imitres 100 mg 2x a day, and the in between attacks, she's taking ibuprofen. Sumatriptan usually prevents but lately, it didn't work as much as before. Ibuprofen can help a little but attack comes after 3 hours. Any help? Other meds we tried this month, is Norco, and Sprix. Norco doesn't work for her. Sprix, helps a little.
Avatar m tn I can never look directly at the spot as I can do with my big floater in the other eye. This spot is fixed in the same position, and it's not exactly central. It seems to show up mostly when my eyes are moving and the light/background conditions are changing. Once my eyes are steady and fixed on something, the spot disappears. But if I, say, look up from the computer screen, and then back down at it....the spot appears again.
1102283 tn?1257821072 Thank you a ton for this. I'll go talk to them at the clinic this week and see what I can do. Hopefully I can come out of there with something that will help.
Avatar n tn Be careful with codeine if you have TMJ (sometimes called lock-jaw) as it can make the TMJ worse.
Avatar n tn I have been having migraines for the last 5 to 6 years and i want to know what i can do about them i get them more and more. I have a migraine atleast 7 times a month. I have no idea what to do about them and i hope that someone can answer my question?
655875 tn?1295698707 Even a simple walk will increase the involuntary head jerking/tic I have developed with this injury. I wish I could exercise, I'm a runner and I run 36 miles a week. I also race in a few triathlons here and there when I have the time.
Avatar m tn 1) when i wake up in the morning i feel great, 2) when i go to bed at night, i feel great, 3) the pain starts at about 1 pm each day, and 4) the pain ends between 9 or 10 at night. I do not like to take medicine, but i caved today and picked up some Ibuprofen. So far...the pills have not gotten rid of the pain, but the pain is a bit more...dull i guess. At least now i can open my eye, and my eye is no longer watering from the pain. This is new to me, i have never had migraines.
Avatar m tn What it does is it constricts those bloodvessels . Often when have a bad attack I take one together with an Ibuprofen and only 1 hr later total relief aaaaaah ! Needless to say all meds have some kind side effect with these some studies showed increased risk of stroke for women and if you take it too often it can also increase the frequency of migraine episodes.
Avatar f tn Thank you for the info, when I can afford the exams I will do them, for now have started on Sumatriptan tabs PRN for migraines and Paraway for parasites.
284078 tn?1282620298 What is the indicence? I don't think anyone knows but I'll just throw it out there. If I make a very gross estimate that there might be 2000 people in my city taking Topamax and I, personally have seen 2 attacks in one year, then that would put the risk at about 1 in 1000. Please understand that I have no scientific evidence to base this rate on and that this is purely my very rough estimate from my experience only. So take it for what's it worth.
Avatar f tn I have a long history of migraines and so had to have a med I could take on treatment. I opted for Imitrex because it is okay with the Peg, Riba, and Incivek. Interestingly enough, I have not had any bad migraines on treatment but I think that is because I know most of the migraine triggers and have avoided them like the plague. Before treatment, I was taking Cafergot and a tiny dose of Tylenol # 3 when I got the migraines, which was not often these last few years.
Avatar n tn Hello, I have had an ongoing headache with nausea for about three weeks. Mri and labs checked out ok. Darvocet, tylenol, ibuprofen dont seem to help much. Dr gave me a shot in my neck which helped for two days but also left me with flushing. The same Dr gave me Naproxen and hydracodone but i cannot take the hydracodone as it upsets my stomach and basically does not allow me to function.The front and back of my head hurt as do my neck and jaw.
469113 tn?1217760985 it was not working. I hoep the 2400 helps me. I cant stand it any more. I am seeing a couselor that is helping me out alot.. but he cant make the pain go away.. he can only help me to deal.. what type of meds do you all use for daily headaches? i am also taking vitamins.
Avatar n tn The topamax that I am on can cause serious birth defects... there is a vitamin you can take daily, which I do take, in case of "accidents"... but, when one is family planning, if you can AVOID being on topamax, I think you are making a good choice... if you can't avoid being on topamax, do know that there is this vitamin you can take that will allow you to have a healthy baby. Ask your doctor about it. The other anti-seizure medications you completely want to avoid.
1103688 tn?1257898152 I've had migraines for as long as I can remember, and have tried different types of treatments. I take 50 mg of Topomax daily as a prophylactic preventative, and it's greatly reduced the number of severe headaches I get, but I still have "normal" headaches almost daily, and if I don't take care of them they will usually turn into migraines. I have Midrin as a preventative, but don't like it because it doesn't always work. Sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't.
612876 tn?1355518095 So far I have not noticed any problems, no need for more pills. I usually take only one pill on the days I use it. So I am hoping that using one pill 3-4 times a week will not be enough to cause any tolerance/addiction. I am so glad to finally have something that works for pain after searching 13 years! Anyone else on Fioricet? I am interested to hear about your experiences.
305180 tn?1279720347 I went to bed with a headache last night and woke up with a migraine this morning. I took Excedrine Migraine to take it away, but its been a couple hours and still not gone. The Excedrine has upset my stomach, even though I ate before I took it, and now I feel really spacy and have a strange pressure at the base of my skull into my neck. If I move a certain way I get a cold/hot feeling which I think is a pinched nerve, but not sure.
Avatar n tn ) • Also have recently commenced Baclofen (5mg) tds I take a few complementary medicines to assist with my general health which I am unsure is providing help with my symptoms. Fish oil 1000mg capsules (2 tds), Ginko Biloba, Olive Leaf extract. When I experience the symptoms, a wet and cool pack on my face and forehead will give relief where I sleep till the next day or deal with it until I go to bed. The other thing that gives relief is a very hot shower where the stream hits onto my neck.
Avatar f tn Iv tried preventatives that did nothing but bad side effects. Along with all sorts of pain meds. I currentlly take ibuprofen almost daily as relpax for my migrianes when needed one with a shot of sumatriptan (immetrex) injected in my leg when the relpax fails to work. Those are only acute meds and have to b taken wisely so I use them sparingly. I only get ten pills a month anyways.iv also had 6 nerves burned on left side of neck and an occipital nerve block in skull.
Avatar f tn Take this medicine by mouth with a glass of water. Follow the directions on the prescription label. You can take it with or without food. Take your medicine at regular intervals. Do not take your medicine more often than directed. Do not stop taking except on your doctor's advice. A special MedGuide will be given to you by the pharmacist with each prescription and refill. Be sure to read this information carefully each time.
Avatar f tn I just want to feel like myself again or at least find out what I have so that I can deal with it. Any help anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar m tn Her symptoms are pretty much not going away, and I am trying everything I can. I know a little bit about human biology, but I've exhausted almost all of my sources of information. She needs to go to a major academic hospital, but, when you don't have health insurance, its tough. Tests she has had so far: EKG EEG MRI (head) Holter Monitor CT scan (head) Stress Echo All normal. Diagnosed with Neurocardiogenic Syncope and IBS.
875426 tn?1325532016 Once I was off most the drugs, I came home with plenty of migraines, got some help for awhile with acupuncture and prescribed "coptis purgefire" by "HealthConcerns", and got to the point where drugs that wouldn't have helped anymore before started to be more effective.
768044 tn?1294227036 Also, the chronic headaches may have been reduced after I started taking topamax, an anticonvulsant that is often used to treat migraines and other types of chronic pain. I can understand why you hated the Prozac... I took a medication with a similar side-effect and withdrawal profile called Effexor and my doctor actually thought it made my headaches worse, not better, which is why I was taken off of it.
1030950 tn?1261014113 Hey. I have never had problems with my sleeping so i really doubt that it is that. I have tried altering my diet taking out things and changing it around. I saw the doctor today and he is sending me for bloodwork as well as an ECG.
Avatar f tn Since then, I have had auras every few days. In fear that I might become numb and wracked with cold and shivers, I take an anti-inflammatory every time I see an aura starting. I've been told that these migraines might be due to a hormonal imbalance (since they all occur when I'm on or close to getting my period). I'm going to visit my doctor again and try to figure out what I can do to prevent these migraines from coming on. Wish me luck!
