why do pain pills give me a headache
I did not get a migraine on day 6 I got another migraine, this one sent me to the hospital as my doctor would not give me phenegran suppositories to help with the vomiting, he gave me pills? My own saliva was making me vomit. Why would a doctor give you pills when you tell them you cannot stop vomiting? Anyhow they gave me a shot of something at the ER and a suppository to take home with me. Since I was taking 2 soma twice a day I ran out of Soma early and I will not take the OxyContin anymore. This was very helpful. My doctor called my mother who is also his patient. I am 42 years old and I am pretty sure he was not legally allowed to discuss my healthcare issues with my mom. He told her he has given me every kind of pain med out there? I am not really aware of what s out there but Norco, Oxycodone, and OxyContin is everything out there? So I am back to just dealing with the pain. Not very well I might add. I have a 2 year old child that I cannot even pick up.
Any advice from anyone out there? Is there anything else out there that might help without causing muscle tension and isn t as expensive as OxyContin? Thank you
Migraine attacks can last for hoursвor even days. They can cause intense pain, nausea, and vomiting. They can make you sensitive to light or noise, and they can affect your life and work. To treat migraines, you may get a prescription for an opioid (narcotic) or a barbiturate (sedative) called butalbital. These are pain medicines. But you should think twice about using these drugs. Hereвs why: These drugs can make headaches worse. Using too much pain medicine can lead to a condition called MOH, or medication overuse headache. Drugs containing opioids вsuch as hydrocodone (Norco, Vicodin, and generics) or oxycodone (Percocet and generics). Drugs containing butalbital (Fioricet, Fiorinal, and generics). They are not as effective as other migraine drugs.
There are other drugs that can reduce the number of migraines you have and how severe they areв better than opioids and butalbital. Even in the emergency roomвwhere people with severe migraines often ask for opioidsвbetter drugs are available. They have risks. Opioids and butalbital can cause serious withdrawal symptoms if you stop taking them suddenly. People who use high doses for a long time may need to be in the hospital in order to stop using them. Opioids, even at low doses, can make you feel sleepy or dizzy. Other side effects include constipation and nausea. Using them for a long time can lower your sex drive and cause depression and sleep problems. They can be a waste of money. Opioids and butalbital pills do not cost a lot. But why spend money on drugs you donвt need? Also, if these drugs cause side effects and more headaches, you may have to go to extra doctorsв appointments.
This will take time and may cost you money. What drugs are good for migraines? If you have migraine attacks, try one of the drugs listed below. They all work best if you use them when the migraine is just beginning. Start with a non-prescription pain drug that combines aspirin, acetaminophen, and caffeine (Excedrin Migraine, Excedrin Extra Strength, and generics). Or try non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen (Advil and generic) or naproxen (Aleve and generic). If these drugs do not help, or your headaches are more severe, try one of the prescription migraine drugs called triptans, such as sumatriptan (Imitrex and generic). Start If triptans do not work, try dihydroergotamine nasal spray (Migranal). This drug works even better as an injection (DHE-45 and generic). You or your doctor can do the injection. If you have migraines often, or if they are very severe, ask your doctor about drugs to prevent headaches.
When are opioids or butalbital useful for migraines? Your doctor may suggest an opioid if none of the treatments listed above help, or if you have bad side effects. It is not clear if butalbital should be used at all for treating migraines. If your doctor prescribes butalbital for your migraines, ask why. And ask if there are any other drugs that would work. Limit the use of all pain medicines. Do not use prescription pain medicine for headaches for more than nine days in a month. Do not use non-prescription pain medicine for more than 14 days in a month. This report is for you to use when talking with your health-care provider.
