I was never hospitalized however, there were times I had to take many days off from work due to my migraines
The Aleve were "over the counter". I didn't know it came in dosages. I purchased the largest bottles CVS sold-300 capsules.
The Neurologist started me out on 2 a day & then weaned me down to only one a day.
After the weaning process then my Neurologist put me on the Migraine Management Programe.
Topamax - 50mgs daily
Baby Asprin - 81mgs daily (because I am a smoker)
Vit B2 - 400mgs daily
Zomig Nasal Spray - 5mgs as needed
Breyers Vanilla Ice Cream - as needed
Old fashion ice bag - as needed
Daily Naps - 2-3 hours
Because I am on Topamax I have to take a blood test every 4 months from my local v@mpires.
I had to take an early retirement and I am also currently on Social Security Disability because of my migraines.
