Tried Frova. Tried Frova with Toradol. Tried Frova with Aleve (Naproxen)
I have not bothered to try Treximet because I've already tried Imitrex with both Naproxen (same thing) and Toradol (much stronger NSAID.)
Neither did anything for me. Every single person is different, though.
The triptan that worked for me was Maxalt, then it stopped. Nortriptyline had worked for prevention at one time, then it stopped. Effexor and Zonegran had worked at one time, then it stopped. A Depakote infusion worked a couple times.

Barrington, have you had an MRI recently? Maybe there is something going on that is causing you such pain.
I use Maxalt 10 mg....good luck.

I have tried treximet and it does help me somewhat. I get severe to acute migraines. I have tried everything you can imagine to get them under control and havent had much luck. I have hd migraines for 28 years now. I get yelled at and treated like I am stupid sometimes. But the things that I have found over the years that help me a little bit are vistaril, nubain, phenagrin, hydrocodone, and percocet. Sorry I cant help more

Hi DeiDeiz, I thank u for replying. I see my Neuro every month now since the m.s. has been doing very bad. So between the ms and the headaches..... well, what can I say. I suffer severe pain due to the M.S. It is so ironic that the migraines have gotten worse also. Well, he changed me from the Frova to Relpax. They are only giving me 9 per month. They are very expensive and my insurance will not pay for more than 9 a month. They feel that is enough because they are supposed to be strong and should not need more than that; but, I have a headache almost everyday. But this new med seems to be helping! I hope & pray that u are doing well! Thanks again!
Much love and prayers!
