  • i had rx called treximent
    it was great, had migraines
    but i took srtifical food dyes (LAKE dyes) out of my diet and i no longer have migraines

    maybe this can help
    google LAKE dyes
    red 40 was the one that triggers mine
    after five months no red dye-no headaches, i eat a bunch of stuff with this and had three day headache=no more proof needed fro me, lots of people get headaches from this substance

    feel better

  • Valtex isn't for migraines. I think migraines are a side affect of Valtrex...that is why I stopped taking it for the cold sores I get all the time.

  • Valtrex gives me headaches too. I take it when I get cold sores but had to switch back to acyclovir.
