On daily preventative med for hemiplegic migraines (topiramate 75mg) & Imitrex (sumatriptan) (100mg) if needed, as a rescue med...Is it safe to take these?

Yes: Hemiplegic migraines are difficult to control, but topamax (topiramate) and Imitrex as needed can help. One of the side effects of topamax (topiramate) that i dont like is it may give you an aphasia or make you have difficulty with word comprehension/word finding ability. In another words, it can make you look dumb. It also curbs your appetite. Imitrex usually gives a hot flash, but works well if taken early. ...Read more

Is it dangerous to take stimulants (ADHD medications) and beta-blockers (Propranolol) together? If so, why? Diff. med. for BP and migraine prevention?

Based on studies of people on B Blkrs who took cocaine or were given epinephrine for allergic reactions and this turns out not to be unfounded and not the case. If your BP is up see your Dr and review your medications. ...Read more
