I've been taking birth control for the past 7 or 8 years (I'm 26) and somehow never made a connection between the medication and my migraines. I've been getting migraines more frequently lately, but I forgot to take my pills last Friday and Saturday (which were the only two consecutive pain-free days i've had in a while without taking any Maxalt). So i doubled up on my ortho tri-cyclen lo yesterday and my head hurt so bad today i had to stay home from work. coincidence????
