    Okay... I have a person who says they KNOW just the thing to help with migraines. I want to be optimistic. However, I just started a new medcine with the Neurologist,and I also receive Botox injections every 90 days. The botox, has helped about 40%. That being said, they are reduced in severity most times, and length of episode sometimes. The new stuff that I was told that helps is LARREA plus so, if anyont knows about this...please please, share with me. I know everything has side effects. But.. before I go spending more money....I thought I'd ask someone.  Thanks a lot.Denise

    Hi Denise,

     

    I've not heard of Larrea to treat Migraines, but that doesn't mean it isn't used -to what degree of safety and effectiveness are questions that need to be answered before I would take something like this. Is this recommendation from a medical professional or a well meaning friend?

     

    I'm glad to hear you are seeing a reduction in Migraine frequency from Botox. How are you doing on trigger indentification and management? I've found as I get older, my triggers are "growing" with me.

     

    Let me know,

    Nancy

      I only have triggers from food, such as chocolate. Bright lights, and noise, will trigger one for me. Mine too, getting worse as I get older.

      Well, I'm on Baclofen, and using it as directed by Neurologist. I go up to 2 a day in 4 days, so that is the dose I will be taking every night at bedtime. It's used for people who have MS, Fibro, and other disorders. The reveiews were typical. Although, the few I saw for Migraine use, were positive. I'm doing better, but still struggling on a daily basis. Just hoping for the best.

      Thanks Nancy..

      Denise

    Try Sumaval it's an injection it's the only thing that has ever worked on my migraines and I've had them ever since I was a child. I am now 49 and I found this from my pain mgmt doctor but the insurance company will not cover it. She is great and has gotten me samples. It's crazy, it works in minutes. It's a miracle! READ MORE
