I am going to keep this post short and sweet, as I am having a not-so-good head day. Although, this new Brookstone shoulder pillow massager thing I bought in Wisconsin is helping a little...along with drugs and ice packs of course. Anyways, I went to see a new neurologist (Dr. K.) today... and he does in fact seem to be a "headache specialist". He seems to know his stuff. Of course, he is completely changing my current plan of care...which is good, because it's not working, but also frustrating because I will most likely be withdrawling again and having to get used to new meds. Unfortunately, he also told me the RFL was a complete waste. Which I kind of already knew too.
So new Plan of Care:
-Prozac 40mg daily...this kind of scares me! But he says he's had great success with it and migraine prevention. Anyone else ever tried it???
-Meclizine 25mg daily...for my vertigo
-Bystolic 2.5mg daily
He is all about the "prevention" aspect. He wants me to stop all my other meds at this time, except my Sumavel injection as needed and Phenergan as needed.
I am also going to get Depo-Medrol injections the next 4 Mondays. I have had a ton of Occipital Nerve Blocks before...but we'll see!
So as of now...I will be down to only 3 pills a day.
I don't know how it's going to be not taking all my other pills I'm used to taking...but it's worth a shot!
