I guess I will start by giving some brief history. Before I got my initial optic neuritis flareup in July 2011, I would get migraines 3-4x's a week. After the optic neuritis finally got resolved that November, my doctor put me on Topomax and Imitrex, which for the past year and a half has worked very very well. It brought my migraines from 3-4x's a week to 1-2 every 2 weeks.
I just started on Copaxone 9 days ago and since I started on it I've had 5 migraines and they are the worst migraines I have had in a LONG time. The topomax isn't keeping them away and the Imitrex is no longer working. I normally take an Imitrex as soon as I feel a migraine coming on and an hour later, if it's still hurting, I will take a Percocet and that has always worked. Since I started on the Copaxone they have been so severe, I can't move without throwing up, it causes my vision to get very very bad, and the pain is so excruciating, I can only compare it to ALMOST being as painful as a spinal leak headache.
My question is, Can a medication induced headache be "cured" by another medication? Say, if I were to ask my doctor to prescribe me a new migraine medication? Also, what migraine medications have you found to work for you? I have tried SOOOO many but it's been a long time since I've tried any of them, I can't remember which ones worked and which ones didn't. I remember Treximet worked but my insurance will only cover 3 in a 90 day period and Maxalt melts were fast acting but were not strong enough for the severity of my migraines. Anyways, any input would be much appreciated!!
