Currently, I am taking 200mg/day of Topomax and I also take an antidepressant called Imiprimine that is indicated for migraines. I cannot remember the dosage. I am allergice to triptan meds such as Imitrex, so I have been stuck trying all kinds of other abortive medications as treatments, but nothing has really helped. What seems to work for you????

I have severe migraines with daily headaches. My migraines are on the left side on my head, the daily headaches are on the right. Right now I'm on day 51 of a severe headache, and I've gotten 1 migraine this month. I'm only on 75 MG of Topamax but that's because I have liver problems so I can't take too much of it and I take Relpax for the onset. Thank goodness for insurance my Relpax is still $50 for 6 pills.
Have you tried Acupuncture? I'm going through Acupuncture coupled with the medicine. I'm willing to try anything. My Acupuncturist is also a DOM (doctor of oriential medicine) and prescribed me a Chinese Herb called Pian Tou Tong Wan it translates literally to Migraine Pill. You take 8 pills, twice a day, and it's herbal so it doesn't have a lot of side affects.
