I am unable to take Triptans and wondered about other abortive medications people take when a Migraine strikes. I was prescribed Lexapro as a preventative medication which seems to help a bit but I am still getting migraines 4 or 5 times per month. I tried Elavil and Pamelor and had bad GI side effects. My doctor prescribed Fioricet but am afraid of the addictive properties of this medication and need a reliable abortive medication. Just wondered what success others might have with non-Triptan abortives. Thanks.
