Maxalt drug test

Common Questions and Answers about Maxalt drug test


Avatar f tn When I was having frequent migraines and my insurance would only pay for one refill of Maxalt each month, I obtained prescriptions for both Maxalt and Relpax and filled both each month. They worked equally well for me.
Avatar m tn I take hydrocodone nightly and don't take hydromorphone but it showed up on my last urine test..... I'm highly allergic to hydromorphone. Would the fact that I've had to take Ibuprofen for sinus headache have anything to do with this showing up??? I also was taking Maxalt and/or Imitrex at the time. Hydromorphone sends me into anaphalaxis shock within 5 minutes even at the smallest of dosages.... i'm really concerned as to why this has showed up on my urine test...and how?!?!?!?
Avatar f tn And it is not advisable to increase the dose, take it more frequently or use it for a longer period of time than prescribed because because this drug can be habit-forming. The doctors may have been trying to avoid this. Also, if used for extended periods, this medication may not work as well and may require different dosing or different prescription medication. Talk to your doctor about this to clear things up. Take care always.
Avatar n tn What works for us both (in different dosage) is Imitrex. I don't other people's experience with this drug, but overall I have had positive results. You should take it immediately. Don't wait too long.
1524673 tn?1327845100 I can no longer take triptians, no maxalt, Ematrex ect... as these types of meds will make the bleeding in my brain worse. I have been on them for 10+ years. I am still on Topamax and other meds. There is a long story befind this which I can not share right now. What I wanted to share is this, for anyone who has been diagnosed with complicated migraine, has numbness, vision impairment, weakness, speach problems, on one side of your body, please get re-checked.
Avatar f tn A neurologist started me on a 6-day prednisone pack and Maxalt 6 days ago. The Maxalt helps mostly, but I need to take it daily, sometimes twice a day to get relief, which is too much for this drug. 2. Do I have severe sinus headaches with totally normal-looking sinuses? Out of the prednisone, Maxalt, Advil, and Mucinex D, the Mucinex gives me the best relief from my headaches (usually almost all day). 3. Do I have rebound headaches?

1768944 tn?1313911483 I have been to two different doctors and have tried three different types of antibiotics, had multiple blood tests and was prescribed maxalt for migraines. The antibiotics obviously didn't work, and the maxalt helps with some of the symptoms...sometimes, but doesn't treat the problem. My blood tests have all come back normal with the exception of one in which it showed I had a very slight positive reading for the presence of anti nuclear antibodies.
Avatar n tn Just looking forward to being drug free for the first time in a very long time. Thank you for any advice and reassurance.
Avatar f tn With respect to New Mexico, you might want to consider a test trip for about 3-4 weeks to see if there is any improvement. Here's why. Now that I have two dates, I can reviewed weather mapping data and images I collect for the U.S. I do so because I can correlate my wife's migraines (and my own slight headaches) to specific impending weather patterns. My historical data shows on both dates that significant systems moved nearby your geographic location.
Avatar n tn The one that i am considering taking is the Depakote, however I am into all the natural stuff and are aprehensive to take this drug. I am totally over this headache and am considering taking this drug. The Dr. stated that he truly cannot pinpoint the cause of these headaches and that the depakote will stop the signal for the headaches. He has prescribed it to start with 250 mgs. tid for the first week and 500 tid for 3 more weeks. My other Dr. suggested pamalor and midril.
Avatar n tn My current medication regiment consists of Requip, Depakote, Provigil, Trazadone, Maxalt, oral iron supplement, and B2. It is not particularly effective. The last attempt to remove me off my dopaminergic agent for a drug holiday resulted in extreme PLM's of such amplitude that when my 190 lb spouse would attempt to hold my legs still by laying across my legs and pressing his full body weight down on them I'd still move him.
Avatar f tn He advised a cardiac CT and I agreed. Prior to the test they had to give me 3 vials of a medication to slow my heart rate, once I was in the lab, they began to do the prior set up and brought me a nitro glycerin, next thing I new a doctor was there do administer yet another dose of some drug to bring my heart rate down. It didn't work quite as well as they had hoped and I did have one pvc in the middle of the test which gave 1 image that was not clear.
673736 tn?1228238186 I have had migraines since i was 15, I am now 37, about 10 years ago my daughters pediatrician at the time finally reccomended I see a neurologist from that point on I have tried and retried every migraine medication they make it seems. I am on Inderal, Topamax, Skelaxin, Maxalt Mlt plus the narcotics that are still sometimes needed from time to time.
Avatar m tn My blood pressure was mildly high and lowered after a 2nd test. The doctor prescribed Flexaril (5mg) and Vicodin (5/500). She then scheduled a follow-up visit (at 15 days). RESULTS: The combination of Vicodin and Flexaril helped my headache go almost un-noticeable. I slept frequently and was very aware when the medication(s) were no longer in my system. I followed the recommended dosage between 4 and 6 hours.
Avatar f tn I'm looking for a treatment center to help with prescription drug abuse (norco, percocet, ativan) and there are two that seem to be willing to work with me financially. My insurance is Medicare and they don't cover residential treatment for anything, only inpatient detox if needed. The two places I'm looking at are Malibu Horizon and Hemet Valley Recovery Center & Sage Retreat. I haven't found really any online review of either facility.
Avatar f tn I hate to say it because I know some people are getting good results with Cymbalta, but I just have questions about that drug and it effectivness as well as it safety. I have taken just about every AD medication known, including Effexor and the ONLY medication that gave me trouble was Cymbalta. My system is very tolerent to AD meds, but after 5 weeks on Cymbalta, I felt just horrible. Your also not the first person that has reported Issues with Cymbalta.
Avatar n tn My neurologist has not really told me what causes them or what they are just switches my meds or ups the doses. I do get relief from the triptans (maxalt and frova), but that only last that day and the next day I get the headache back. Since I can not take the triptans everyday I am stuck with this headache all the time. It has taken over my life. I am married and have 3 children and it is effecting my family life also since I am miserable a lot of the time.
373367 tn?1246405635 Mine had been monthly before all this started. I have been using Maxalt which has been like a miracle drug because nothing over the counter ever helped me. It was basically like I had to go into a dark room and lay still and try to go to sleep to get away from the throbbing pain. It is definitely different than a regular headache that ibuprofen will help.
Avatar f tn Yes, go get a Rx for the migraines. An A&P test (Anatomy and Physiology?) Yes, after taking a test like that, you will need something strong to take for your head. :( Hopefully, the physician will order some type of scan for your head along with giving you a Rx for the migraines. Please take care of yourself and good luck with your exam. :) Keep us posted.
Avatar n tn ( for break through migraines see if your dr will give you maxalt self desolving tabs or imatrex best of luck
Avatar f tn I've been taking 2000iu vit D for about 3 years, after test results came back w/ extremely low amounts.. Will try anything at this point, the migraines& IC are so bad. If magnesium supplements have any effect, helpful or otherwise, I will keep you all posted. It is frustrating I've seen 3 neuros &2uros and gone in every 2 months for about 3 yrs plus regular visits to my gp, and no one has ever mentioned this as something that could help..
388261 tn?1215403444 I think the scariest thing about habitual drug use is the eventual normalcy of it. You get to a state of needing the drug to be human. You can interact with humans, work, take care of your kids, do homework, play games, wash the dog, make dinner, pay bills, and live like anyone else, but you need that drug to be "normal". Drugs change everything about who you are....who you once were. They change you into a completely different animal.
Avatar m tn For my migraine headaches, I have been prescribed Voltaren, Vanatrip, Maxalt, Toradol, Tramadol, Vicodin, Imitrex---but not all at once. VOLTAREN and IMITREX did absolutely NOTHING and gave NO RELIEF. VANATRIP made me tired all day, raised my blood pressure (up to 152/106), and made me hallucinate. MAXALT made me VERY drowsy and also raised my blood pressure. TRAMADOL made me sick and vomit for HOURS at a time and made my headaches worse.
Avatar n tn What is the opiad in this drug? Is it also codeine, or a different drug? I know my body's reaction to the T3, so I am a little nervous to try this new one....oxycodone. Is it stronger, not as strong, the same??? I would really appreciate any help! Thanks!!

Avatar f tn If you have reoccuring migriane, I wonder you don't have a medication such as a triptan already, like Imitrex, Maxalt, Zomig, and others to try and abort the migraines from really settling into place. There are also preventative medications, such as anticonvulsants, anti-depressants, atypical antipsychotics, and NSAIDs that you can take daily to try and prevent the migraines from starting in the first place.
Avatar f tn After still not helping with a month on these meds and migraines increasing, mri/mra results came back fine, today I was increased to 1000mg a day Depakote, others the same, added another preventive med, and maxalt to alternate with the imitrex. I don't drink anything but water, don't eat chocolate, icecream, eat lunchmeat, smoke, drink, etc. I avoid all items I can that may or may not cause migraines, yet they seem to increase in severity and length everyday.
Avatar m tn I currently take topamax 100 mg a day, fioricet as needed, and maxalt in cases when I can't get relief. In addition to the migraines, I have places all over my body that I can't stand to even touch. Some people refer to them as trigger points. They are all over my body, some examples for me are the tops of my shoulders, top of my scalp, back of my neck, my arms, etc...I also have pain in what I believe would be desribribed as the cartilege in my sternum and rib cage.
