I hope you feel better.
The past couple of days I've been slightly migrainey, adjusting to more med, and out of it at times due to one or the other. At more viable times I've been talking with dad about some new meds he is on, researching those, and busier with house stuff. Mom has been real tired and also has pain in her fingers, so I've been trying to help out when I can.
I really did not expect 750mg to be sufficient as a prophylactic... marveled that it had helped but Murphy's law you know, wish I'd kept my mouth shut, hehe - I am at increasing risk for migraines at the moment so, I was pretty much waiting for the other shoe to drop.
- Friday 1050mg: 300 + 150 + 300 + 300.
- Saturday 1200mg: 300 x 4. (300mg q 6h)
I tolerated 1200mg well, without even excessive somnolence. It will probably take a few weeks before I can assess how truly effective it is as a prophylactic. For now, I will not increase further even for breakthrough sx.
I decided that a 750-900mg dosage was likely too low and it was more sensible to go up to 1200mg, that being the "last known good configuration
" (in Windows NT crash recovery terms, lol)
. I.e. It took that much last time - I know that 900mg did NOT work then.
