We have switched insurance companies and now I can't get Treximet unless I want to pay out the #$%@. This is a list of the ones I can get including which ones I will get the generic for. Does anybody know a good one? Thanks!
I have long hx of migraine, some of these other 'lyme' symptoms as well. makes me wonder what came first....??? thus I have tried many things and everyone's chemistry is different I can tell you what I know about me and my experiences. you may need to experiment a bit as well and Ive learned to mix a few 'cocktails' of things to get relief.
I don't know this one Sedapap (generic)
these have vaso-active properties that work to constrict the vessels in brain which contribute to the migraine/pain in the head. Cafergot tab (generic) ergotamine +caffiene worked a little while, made me feel little ill and wired then didn't work Ergomar sounds similar to the above, do web search,
these are more pain reliever which can be use with the above... Midrin (generic) somewhat effective like a pain reliever Esgic Plus tab (generic) Esgic,Fioricet (generic) Phrenilin Forte Fioricet/codeine (generic) good 'pain reliever' Fiorinal (generic) Fiorinal/codeine (generic)
these also are vaso contrictors without the caffiene '"TOP SHELF" Zomig, Zomig ZMT Maxalt, Maxalt-MLT like imitrex, doesn't work quite as well Imitrex (not inj) (generic)-very good, most of time, all these dispensed limited number unless given override by md cannot use daily, save for severe put yourself to bed headache
dilantin is mentioned which is an anti-seizure, I use topomax 2xper day which I started before Lyme DX 'cause the Imitex quit working. so, now manage H/A with maintenace topomax then excedrine or ibuprofine, fiorecet, oxycodone, imitrex100 (working again after topa) sometimes a couple benedry if really bad . good frogetting grief charlie brown! forgive my spelling

cafergot worked really well for me but only if I too it at the first hint of a migraine. Waiting till it hit or was full blown made the drug less effective. I have found with ongoing lyme and bart treatment I have been far less chemically sensitive (perfumy and chemichal smells triggered my mirgaines) and have not had a migraine in 18 months. A big blessing. Are yours impriving at all with lyme & co treatment?
