    Infertility meds and migraine headaches

    I am hoping someone can help me. I am on my third cycle of taking Clomid and Repronex, and these meds give me the worst migraine headaches. My neurologist thought I should me fine taking my migraine medicine--Imitrex--up until I ovulate and conception could occur. After that, she said I could not take it at all until I knew whether or not I was pregnant. My OBGYN, however, said I should not take the Imitrex at all while on the fertility meds. She advised just taking a narcotic. (Tylenol does nothing for my headaches.)

    Does anyone suffer from the same problem, and if so, what has your doctor advised? Last night I was in so much pain with a migraine I was in tears, and by 4:30 a.m. I gave in and took the Imitrex. I am on day 6 of my cycle--my fourth day of taking Clomid--and now I am scared that I have ruined my chances for this cycle. Someone please help! I appreciate your advice.

    Re: Infertility meds and migraine headaches

    Hi Jennio, I also suffered from migraines throughout fertility treatments and my pregnancy. My Perinatologist and OB said I could take tyelonol with some caffiene first , then if that doesn't work then they give me vicodin. But I wasn't allowed to use any migraine meds during fertility treatment or in my pregnancy so far. I use ice packs a lot and really try to avoid triggers.....but I feel for you, hang in there, maybe even try a massage? AimeeM
