Topomax is definitely a no for me. I tried it - not for migraines, but can't remember why I trialed it - and the side effects are too much for me. In October, my physiatrist put me on Celebrex 200mg for migraine prevention - to take once or twice a day. I had never heard it used for that, but it worked very well. I only took it once a day unless I had a breakthrough headache, then would take the second dose. It hasn't been cutting it for a few weeks now. I know I tried nortriptyline a long time ago, but it didn't do anything. I'm just wondering what people are using so that when I talk to my doctor, I'm a little more prepared. TIA.
