Mighty expensive pills too. I think imitrex is somewhere around $10.00 a pill. I tried the nasal spray, along with several other different migraine aborters but nothing worked. I finally decided I had to let the headaches run their course as nothing was going to stop them. It was/is nothing for me to throw up for six hours or more when I get a bad one. I feel sorry for you son, being so young and dealing with this $$$$....
Imitrex is a waste for these headaches. They gave us a handful to try to see if they worked...no such luck. Unfortunately, these headaches don't seem to come and go for him...they've been pretty much constant since this all began. They did try various drugs however at this headache clinic...nothing.
I understand you're in limbo with these implants due to no insurance. Are there any other surgeons willing to remove these horrendous things for you, without cash in hand?
Funny, 'they' make a mistake, and expect you to sit around waiting to gather enough $$$ to fix it. Nothing surprises me anymore about the medical/dental profession. I hope that you're hanging in there.
