No More Zomig for Me

I've successfully used Zomig Nasal Spray for years. It has been my second choice to the Imitrex StatDose system because the delivery mechanism works so much faster and easier for me than triptans in pills form do. But I don't think I can use it anymore.

When I used it yesterday I ended up feeling like my entire body had been mowed down by a truck. It hurt so bad I questioned whether it would have been worse to put up with the mild migraine or the side effects. As all of you know, that's really saying something.

This had already been happening when I used Zomig ZMT (the melt-in-your-mouth tablets), but today was the first time it happened when I used the nasal spray.

It's dissapointing because my insurance only covers four doses of Imitrex injections a month, which is not nearly enough for someone with chronic migraines. I can only hope this doesn't start to happen with that medication because I have no idea what I'll do then.

Yet another thing to discuss with Dr. Krusz next week.
