Hello, this is Dr. Stan, thank you for your question. I am U.S. trained,

Board Certified and I have 30 years of patient experience and I am here to help you today. I'm sorry that you suffer from migraine headaches. Do you currently take any medication for your headaches?

Gabapentin300mg 2 capsules at night

Excedrin motrin
Doctor: Dr Stan, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Thank you for this information. Migraine headaches can be treated with 3 adult strength Aspirin Tablets but must be taken within 10 minutes of the first sign of aura or pain. Prescription medications such as Ergotamines will also help but these are prescription medicines from your doctor. You mentioned that you have a "hormone" imbalance. Are you taking any hormone replacements?

Estradiol 2 mg 1tablet daily
Doctor: Dr Stan, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Thank you. So your hormone imbalance is being controlled. Now you need some additional help with your migraines. Discuss getting a prescription from your doctor for one of the following.

Different triptan medications for migraines

  • Imitrex (Sumatriptan), Zomig (Zolmitriptan), Maxalt (Rizatriptan), Relpax (Eletriptan), Treximet (Sumatriptan and Naproxen Sodium Tablets), Amerge (Naratriptan), Frova (Frovatriptan) or Axert (Almotriptan).

One of these will be of more benefit than the Gabapentin you are taking.

Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have.

I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you and that I have earned my 5 star rating today.

Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen ( rating me now does not close your question). We can continue here until you are satisfied, simply use the reply box and let me know. Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
