I a normal, healthy 27 yr. old woman with migraines being my only health problem. My husband and I would like to have a baby, but with migraines occuring anywhere from 9-12 times a month, there's no way I could go without any imitrex or other pain medication, preventative medication, etc. throughout a pregnancy. We spoke to a gyno who said the only safe medication was tylenol w/ codeine. Well I tried taking that when I had a migraine and it was like eating skittles...not effective at all. Do you know of any other kind of medications available. Right now our plans are on hold until I get the migraines under control. But under control could take all of my life!! Any suggestions would be awesome.
Thank you Sarah
