    free clinical online migraine information
    An_241601 posted:
    There is a new free website that offers the same clinical articles used by professional neurologists to the general public. It has the most extensive migraine coverage of any online resource. Note that the articles are written for physicians and not dumbed down for general consumption, but they are of considerable depth and quite up to date. The site is available here:

    I have been told by my Neurologist for about three years now that a new drug was coming out to treat specifically Hemiplegic Migraines. But before he retired last he said it still had not been released. I now have a new Neurologist who insists on trying me on drugs that I have been on before and had adverse reactions or allergic reactions too. Since I can not take medications used for common migraines; I am taking Topiramate, Lamotrigine and Acetaminophen with Codeine #3 Tablets 1 every 6 hours for pain.The medicines do not control the length or severity of the pain I suffer from. Will there ever be a drug specifically for Hemiplegic Migraines? I have been having them for 58 years. When them get really bad I have to go to the E.R. for a shot for the pain and nausea.
    itmatsb replied to carsonjane's response:
    I am not familiar with the kind of migraines that you suffer from, but with you having suffered for 58 years, I have to ask, have you asked about Botox, nerve block, trigger point injections? Also have you asked about taking Namenda off-label which is supposed to work on "central migraines". Perhaps you need to get second opinions from a neurologist.
    itmatsb responded:
    Unfortunately I knew more management treatments than the site knew about. But I do credit them for knowing about off-label Namenda.
    rosielou replied to carsonjane's response:
    If any doctor insists on prescribing meds that you have a history of allergic reactions, that is improper. You should find another doctor, this one doesn't follow safe practices. Your health should always be the top priority!
