Comment:
I've had occasional (~4 times per year) classic migraines for the last 35 years. OTC analgesics have been useless.

It seems like a blunt instrument because it's ... Show Full Comment

Treatment for use on my Chronic Migraines, cluster, & nummular headaches. I started this medication in 1997 with Maxalt for the migraines from a family practice doctor near my home town. I moved to Missouri and enrolled in the VA health care and the Doctor was happy with this result. He continued the prescription nearly 2 years, and I moved to Nebraska. The VA is not like the one I went to ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have had Chronic Intractable Migraines ever since a car accident in 1989. I average 4 migraines a week. I have tried most every other treatment and medicine. I even had the wires implanted on my head to block the pain signals to no avail. Sometimes a nerve block shot with lidocaine in the temple region helps some. Stadol is the only medicine that works consistently and quickly. Until somethin ... Show Full Comment
