Today should be fun. I get to see the neurologist to help figure out why after taking out my brain tumor, putting in a VP shunt, and putting me on preventative meds, I still get horrible headaches.
Shunt Brain to Peritoneum
Topamax • Type: Oral
I hope you get the help you need.I get a steroid injection in my neck.I Also take topiramat and I still get horrible headaches. But my doctor says because have stress in my life I will always get headaches. Which why should I take this medication if it is not helping me at all.
lol, we will always have stress in our lives. Don’t you think we deserve to live without debilitating headaches? The doctor and I decided to up my Topamax dose and switch to a different triptan, so that’s the current plan. Let’s see how it goes!
best advice is come off topirimate and change, when i was on topirimate it made my migraines more frequent and worse as well as horrible side effects. i was on 150mg daily. worst drug ever, i’m on amitriptyline now which is amazing had only 3 migraines in the past 4 years i’ve been taking it!
