Thanks for the info on Topamax!

I have suffered with migraines for more years than I can remember! My mother also suffers with them as did my grandmother.

However, I can not take the medicines like Imitrex due to a heart problem I have. Also, I can't take Ibuprofen due to my allergy to aspirin.

Usually, I just have to suffer it out in a dark room with a cool rag on my forehead and taking Extra Strenth Tyleno like candy! When I get an exceptionally bad one, I take a general pain pill, Ultram.

I have a doctor appt in two weeks, I think I will ask if I can take the Topamax. If I can, it would sure be worth a try!

Thanks gain for the information!
