So I am taking Amitriptyline for migraine and Buspar for anxiety. How can I stop a migraine from pushing through my medications? They last for about 3 days.

      I haven't been on that migraine med - I started on sumatriptan and now I'm on frovatriptan - but ik some of the important things are taking your rescue med as soon as you know it's a migraine, hydrating and eating good food, and doing what you can to rest your brain (dark room, low sound, etc). My neurologist swtiched me to frova bc my postdrome symptoms would drag on for days. Frova has a much longer half life so it stays active in the body longer. It works very well for me! Like magic almost. It takes a little bit to start working (an hour or 2 maybe), but once it does, I'm able to return to work or whatever else I need to do and I have really minimal postdrome.

      Not sure how to help with the Migraines as my doctor and I are trying to get mine under control still. However, I have used amitriptyline before I just want to warn you to be extra careful in the sun. When I was on it I sat under an umbrella on a porch and burned in less then five minutes.

        @TurtleRose I appreciate your advice. I need to reschedule my doctor appointment.

One user mentioned that if they catch the migraine extremely early, ibuprofen can help. However, if not, sleep and drinking lots of electrolyte water might be helpful. It's important to consult with your doctor for personalized advice on managing migraines while taking Amitriptyline and Buspar.
