The migraine aura: The visual, sensory, and motor phenomena vary in complexity. Common symptoms include visual disturbances during which the patient may describe homonymous visual changes. These changes may include geometric patterns obscuring the visual field, bright spots or flashing lights floating in the visual field. Rec.: orofacial pain or headache specialist for evaluation.
You can't: The migraine aura is a neurosensory disturbance that includes a series of idiopathic, neurologic symptoms that develop gradually over a 5-20 minute period and last less than an hour. An aura that lasts more than 60 minutes may be indicative of serious pathology. The onset of the actual migraine headache usually occurs within 60 minutes after the aura abates. Idiopathic = we don't know why or how.

Does Topamax (topiramate) need to be taking for say 6 months for persistent migraine aura and migraines, or can it be taken only until the aura and migraine stops?
Typically long term: I tend to keep my headache patients on prophylactic medications stable for 2-3 yrs (especially if they're high risk for headaches, or there are genetic predispositions) before weaning down on anything. I also slowly wean down over a period of several months as we are coming off as opposed to cold turkey. Write to me at: www. Healthtap. Com/drsaghafi if you'd like more information.
