I know some of you suffer from migraines so I thought I would go to the experts. My 15 year old sister has them bad enough it keeps her home from school. She's been on a medication (I don't know what) but it wasn't working well so the doctor is in the process of switching her to something else. (Possibly Topamax???) The insurance company however, is being a PITA (or head in this case) so currently Sis is on the original medication but at a reduced level because they have to titrate her down. She should have been on the new medication by now but because of the insurance company, the doctor had her hold at a lower level so she would have SOMETHING in her system. But, since it's at a lower level it's not doing nearly the job it was so she's missed quite a bit of school lately. I suggested wrapping her head in a wet towel but she said she's tried it with no sucess. Is there anything else she can try to help ease these headaches??? FYI: She's already had a CAT scan or MRI....one of those....to rule out any tumors or other visible causes for the headaches. And we did get to confirm that yes, there really is a brain in there. (We had lots of fun with that) I just don't know what to tell her to help. I think if anything OTC was a possibility, she'd OD before it did anything as she's not yet 5' and weighs about 85 lbs. 'Course, if OTC stuff worked, I wouldn't be asking.
