Hi there Aggie,

I personally think you should seek afvice from your GP regarding Migraines and what medication to take!

You can buy many things over the counter, but what can't be done is a checkup to make sure the headaches are caused by Migraines or whether they caused by something else!

There are medications that you can take way before the Migraine really hits, which are quite useful as at that time nausea will not have set in. Also there are injections available!

Take care!

Thanks Lesley. I have been diagnosed/prescribed medication by my GP. Just wanted some alternatives to discuss with her if the Maxalt Melt situation continues.

I also think there are shots that folks can take for migraines but can't remember the name of the medicine. My girlfriends sister uses them. Maybe Google may provide answers. I am drawing a blank mentally...........gee, isn't that a surprise.:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

Aggie you could try getting it on line since you have a prescription for it. Somebody has to know why it is hard to obtain - the pharmacist usually can advise about this sort of problem so how about calling them.

:) Good Luck

Hi Aggie,

I also have Migraines. I use Zomig melts. I also have Imitrex injections I use..
Also, this last week I was prescribed Topamax for migraines. I have not started the med yet, so can't say if it helps..

I hope you find relief for your migraines soon. I know they are terrible.

Best Wishes,
Sandy
