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
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,
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 for the update. As always I am keeping my fingers crossed for you - don't lose hope - we will find an answer!
