?  There's 2 generic brands that my pharmacy carries. For some reason the old generic formalation is cheaper with my insurance?

New formulation : (less Tylenol)

butalbital 50 mg, acetaminophen 300 mg, caffeine 40 mg, and codeine phosphate 30 mg.

old formulation : (still in production)

butalibal 50mg ,[acetaminophen 325mg], caffeine 40mg, and codeine phosphate 30mg.

 

My doc didn't like the idea the first time but I'm hoping to get the point across my next visit. I'll keep you informed!

I've suffered from migraines off and on for decades. I started seeing a headache specialist a couple of years ago and none of the meds in her arsenal had any effect at all. So she began giving me Botox injections every three months which have helped substantially. I took Fioricet when I was younger but she won't prescribe it due to it being notorious for causing rebound headaches. The problem is that I still get migraines occasionally and Fioricet is the only thing that helps. I still have some that I got from another doctor am almost out.:(

i been experiencing this headache, which i think is a tension headache and not a sinus headache since i had my dental cleaning , and the weather change but i also stopped certain meds..., so i think mine is tension related and w/ding from medication and going back on my original track, than again i had a similar experience 2yrs ago and that happened in the spring time after a dental cleaning, one tooth makes every part of my left jaw hurt when i get the tension headache, but theres nothing wrong with the tooth for the dentist to butcher up, so i am nervous and stressed about it , i still have my INS , just to scared to go see doctor from doctor if the primary cant address, i hate waiting in doctor offices and  filling paper work out.

 

, i hope its nothing serious for me, i had mri's done before but for lower back and neck not the head, but the same headache that pops out of nowhere anytime with presure behind the eye and above the left jaw ??? 

 

so now i find mself reading other post for help , i am using flexeril a muscle relaxor atm instead of excedrine and advil which i been taking since xmas is whee the headaches started, but i 2weeks time off so i am using it to rest/recovery/keep it light/no stress /avoid taking other meds, 

the excedrin works, but i want this to go away on its own.

MaxAlt is hands down the best migraine med I have used.  It only works for legit debilitating migraines, doesn't do anything for regular headaches.  But a migraine that makes you light sensitive and crippled, one pill dissolved under the tongue and its gone in 10 minutes.  Amazing stuff.  Perks don't even cure the pain but with maxalt its gone almost immediately.

Like the Post above Me said about P3rks doing nothing for the pain it's because Most Migraines will not respond to 0P0idz to help with the pain although it depends on the type of Migraine some Migraines that are special in the way they are different and can be treated with P-K's. These Days I would suggest CBD or CBN/Weed Strains for Inflammation since N.S.A.I.D. Medication like Ibupr0fen seem to be the most effective in Treating Migraines. Most likely due to the Anti-Inflammatory effect they have ALONGSIDE the PAIN RELIEVING effects they provide.

I know this is an old Thread but I just wanted to Post this in case someone else might find this Information Helpful. I had a friend who had nearly dropped out of high school and nearly didn't go to College from Migraines because the Doctors couldn't figure out the cause. Luckily though before she missed to much school one Day... The migraines simply just vanished one day without any explanation as to why they stopped. It was like 2-3 Years of her like only going to School a handful of Days for that amount of time which had passed by.

Sorry if anyone’s already said this, but benzos do wonders for my migraines. Enough of any type of benzo I take will completely get rid of a migraine. This is why I’m addicted to them now, so it’s a blessing and a curse

And thjs is coming from someone who has had a literal migraine for several straight months in the past without treatment, but if I’m on benzos all day, my head rarely even slightly hurts.

@Joelco92 Benzos typically help with tension migraines. They have a lot of research showing that magnesium is extremely helpful for treating migraines. You should go do some research on it especially if you hadn't tried before you began using benzos to treat your migraines.

If taking magnesium works then you could possibly start slowly lowering your dose of benzos if you wanted to. Be careful though different types of magnesium supplements absorb better than others and magnesium oxide is the worse with as little as 4% absorption.

So do your research about which has the best absorption too that's what I'm currently trying to do due to the many other benefits that magnesium supplements provide.

Oh thanks I did not know that. I am quite an anxious person which is probably why I like benzos as much as I do. But I’m trying to cut down on them
