Is Taking Many Hot Or Cold Showers Good Or Bad During A Prolonged Migraine Attack?

A very hot or very cold shower sometimes is the only way for temporary relief during a prolonged migraine event. Is it contributing to a rebound affect or the headaches lasting longer?

Answer

Hi there,

These questions are reallly better suited for your pharmacist. What I can tell you is that Metoprolol is a beta blocker and is used for Migraine prevention. Also to lower blood pressure. Your doctor may put you on this even if you do not have a blood pressure issue. Although it may take a while, up to three months, to see a reduction in your Migraine frequency and severity when trying new medications. Iprazochrome I think is a serotonin antagonist, a medication I am not familiar with. Neither of these medications should come into play with MOH.
