Meloxicam For Migraines
Maybe: It might help and will not cause any issues to try. It is just over the counter medications that benefit some people with migraines and is seen as an abortive medication. If it does not, then you will have to consider prescription medications, such as triptans or ergots that can be more effective for abortive therapy. Excedrin migraine does work very well for some people, and others it does not. ...Read more

Depends.: The first issue that must be addressed is whether triptans are effective. Once that is established, your physician will determine the appropriate usage based on the specific triptan chosen. Secondly, patients that require triptans frequently as abortive care for migraines, are likely better served by transitioning to prophylactic medications to prevent the onset of migraines. ...Read more

Yes but why?: Exedrine migraine contains aspirin, acetominophen and caffeine. The asirin is an anti-inflammatory agent, good for menstral cramps while acetominophen, being also and analgesic, can help with the pain. The caffeine helps not. Pure anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen, usually helps best and is safer long term with Aspirin frequently being more caustic to the stomach. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes it is safe, but: Doesn't work well to prevent migraine headaches, and is not fda approved for that purpose. Other far better meds are available.

Probably. but bad.: This doesn't contain any ingredients that one would expect would cause abdominal pain or aggravate an ulcer, but it does contain belladonna, which the fda rates as unsafe.

Belladonna can cause seizures, slowed breathing, lethargy, sleepiness, muscle weakness, and death… same as "deadly nightshade". ...Read more
Is taking 10 mg vicodan 3 x day.klonopin at nite to sleep. Hydroxyzine for interstitial cystitis. Imitrex (sumatriptan) for migraines too much? I have fibromyalgia
Impossible to say: If the 30 mg of hydrocodone a day is for fibromyalgia, then I would say its too much of the wrong drug. If it is for the hip fracture, and you are within a few weeks of the injury, it may be appropriate. Fibromyalgia is best treated with appropriate exercise and the use of both antidepressants and anticonvulsants. You aren't on anything to prevent migraine. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

Combination of Imitrex with naprosyn may also be quite effective. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
