Common Questions and Answers about What does relpax do


1389553 tn?1280785727 Hi jen030770! Yes, migraines are hereditary! Migraine is a genetic disease. Some people are born this genetic disease, in the same way that some people are born with diabetes or epilepsy. There is no cure for migraines, but there are very effective treatments. You are currently trying one preventative treatment and it is not working. You should talk to your doctor about switching to a different preventive treatment.
Avatar m tn It has VERY effectively taken them away, but since I got to the point of abusing them the last 4 years and have made the conscious decision to never take one again…what now? I will inevitably get at least a few migraines EVERY month around menstruation. Sure I have plenty of Tylenol and Ibuprofen, but that seriously does nothing for those kinds of migraines. I really really don’t want to suffer, but I also don’t want to get addicted to anything else. So, what other options are there.
Avatar f tn Do you get the early warning bell : which is an aura or spots, which then progress to numbness in the face, then nausea and finally an intense head ache where you cannot face any sort of light, and need to rest in a state of darkness. I used to lock my self in a cupboard seeking complete darkness. So I tried all sorts of doctors, medication , even the headache clinic, and nothing helped. I used to play soccer, and I was just out of the army, playing a game of soccer .
Avatar f tn So, what dose did everyone here have their success? And what type of diet/eating plan and exercise plan did you do to help it along? I'm desperate to lose 40 lbs (half of which I gained on Zoloft-no longer taking). PLEASE respond if you had any weightloss on this drug, I'm very curious. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!
Avatar f tn I have also tried the usual migraine meds like frova and relpax. That does nothing either. Does anyone have any suggestions? Please help!
Avatar n tn Once the vomiting starts, I am unable to take anything orally - pain meds or even water. Does anyone know of a patch or cream that can be applied as a pain reliever for the migraine? Or maybe to at least stop the vomiting?
Avatar m tn Hi! First get your blood pressure checked. The head feeling warm could be due to high blood pressure or even due to BP falling suddenly. If need be go for 24 hour blood pressure monitoring because this is the simplest reason for your symptoms. The other possibility is clot in some blood vessel (say carotids). This can also give out heat sensation without there being any temperature. Hence dopplar studies or angiograms of carotids should be done.
Avatar f tn Been on a lot of different meds and nothing seems to truly work. If my headache is an actual migraine, then relpax does work for me. However, I've been having this pressure at the top of my head for weeks now and it has gotten much worse. When I take relpax for it, it makes it a little better, but not 100%. The pain sometimes goes behind my eyes and then I can't even do my job..which is computer related. Now is pain has moved to the back of my head to the right side behind my ear.
1376367 tn?1319230027 Our daughter phoned and inquired about the msg and some of the dishes already had it in them and I did have some of these foods which triggered the first one. The pain dragged on throuhgout Thursday and into Friday and finally I took the Relpax at bedtime. We took our visitor to the airport and had lunch and I ate a burger which I paid for and not sure of what the culprit food was. I think it was the smoked bacon on this burger.
Avatar f tn Has anyone ever heard that it is dangerous to take Sansert and Relpax together. What I have read, indicates that you should wait 24 hours inbetween. My Dr. said I could take Relpax while on a daily dose of Sansert, if I get a migraine. I am afraid to do this. Does anyone have experience with these two drugs? Any information would be helpful.
Avatar n tn I have had migraines for ten years and I take relpax at the onset of a headache, sometimes though it gets to be too often and I cannot take relpax anymore than 3 times a week I know that my neck has quite a lot of knots and i get a lot of pain from my back especially neck before a migraine and I do believe they start from there. Does anyone know if physical therapy help migraines? can anyone help in pointing me towards the right thing?
1088430 tn?1259163373 Also, In case your insurance doesn't cover your entire Relpax prescription, I am posting a link to a coupon for $15 off of your Relpax prescriptions. You apparently can't use this coupon if you have any sort of federal or state insurance, or if your private insurance covers 100% of the prescription. Otherwise, you can print this coupon and use it every time you fill your Relpax prescription (but it expires next April).
Avatar n tn But, the nasal spray DOES work incredibly well and this is what is usually prescribed anyway. - Almotriptan. brand name Axert. a very powerful triptan tablet. does work extremely well in tablet form unlike some of the others... in fact, i don't think it comes in anything other than a tablet, probably because it doesn't have to. extremely strong. comes in two doses. i'd suggest starting at the lower dose if you were to try this... especially if you are experiencing side effects with the Relpax.
Avatar n tn I do not have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, I do not drink or smoke and there is no family history of heart problems. My question then is, does anyone know what might be causing this uncomfortable feeling in my chest and the heaviness in my arms? I would appreciate any help or ideas you can give me.
Avatar f tn said I could take Relpax while on a daily dose of Sansert, if I get a migraine. I am afraid to do this because of what the pharmacy has said, even though the Dr. says it is ok. Any information would be helpful.
343872 tn?1196039798 She says that her left eye hurts when she is having headaches but does not complain about her back hurting at all. What could be causing this? Does anyone have any simular expierences?
Avatar f tn How does the Topomax affect you? Does it make you tired at all? How many miligrams so you take? I know exactly what you mean with the halo description. Sometimes I look at lights in the room and they have a greenish glow to them or a halo around them. Do you ever get facial tingling? I am seriously thinking about trying the Topomax, thats what the neuro here said last week when I posted a question on the Neurology forum.
996638 tn?1249679431 Vertex headache is what I was diagnosed with in March of this year. It is a rare side effect of pituitary macroadenomas. During my surgery they were not able to remove the entire tumor because of its proximate to the carotid artery. Is this why I still have the headache? After my surgery, I was dismayed to find that I still have this Vertex headache, or a headache on top of my head. It is daily, 24/7.
Avatar f tn Now I am seeing a neurologist who is doing an MRI but he is already saying he does not know what to do if the MRI doesn't find anything. The pain feels like a deep, dull ache. Looking down and relaxing my eye helps. Also, my doc ruled out migraine. I get those and Relpax work fine for them, but not for this. Anybody have any experience with this? Thanks!
257682 tn?1214940174 I also take that along with Fiorocet if it doesn't go away after taking two of the Relpax (which it does call for). I also take the Topamax once a day (100mg), which some get terrible side effects from. Hang in there girl!
Avatar f tn I have been seeing a pain management doctor since I had a cervical fusion 2 years ago and she is the only one who seems to be concerned. Thankfully she is treating me because I went to one Neuro who said he could not do anything for me since I had the contract with the pain management doctor. Needless to say she was not happy when I called her office balling with the worst headache ever after I left his office.
Avatar f tn Has anyone out there experienced migraines with their FMS? If so, what do you take for them, and what do you recommend in terms of therapy and management suggestions? Imitrex really works for me, but if it is causing other problems I may have to find alternatives. Any suggestions? Thank you so much in advance.
Avatar f tn Everyone is born with it but for some it does not close up. Children usually do not show symptoms of this and so it goes unnoticed until middle age where people begin to stroke. People noticed once their hole was closed their migraines were gone. Some people didn;t notice any changes but it is worth looking into. I have a test for myself coming up called a TEE test. It will tell me if I have a hole or not. DO YOUR RESEARCH and you will find what you are looking for ...eventually.
Avatar n tn So my question is...what can I do to increase my chances of staying clean? What should I do for my migraines? Is there anything thats pretty strong but not an opiate? I really want to kick this habit and would appreciate any help/advice you could give me.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Everyone and Welcome, Come on in and make yourself cozy. You can do this!
Avatar n tn Topamax in higher does does do weird things I was up to only 75mg and I had that weird leg thing. I'm down to fifty and my headaches are just that not migraines.
Avatar f tn My husband was perscribed Cymbalta along with Imitrex and Relpax for migranes. He went into a coma and had to be on a respirator in ICU for 3 days. Is this seretonin syndrome? The doctor claimed it was just a coma brought on by an intese migrane! Weird, Huh?
Avatar f tn I would like to ask my neurologist if we can go with the Midrin and Percocet combination (when needed), but I am afraid if I do ask for the Percocet he will think I am a drug-seeking patient. However it really does seem to work the best for me. Do any of you have any advice about how I can approach this without him thinking it is an attempt to weasel narcotics?
Avatar n tn I will try going to three in a few weeks and see what happens. The problem is I always take two at a time, so what do I do - take 1, 1 and 1? Thanks for checking in on me. Where are you in the withdrawal process?
