Walking on the Medical Treatment Treadmill

I'm a bit at a loss for what to do for migraine preventatives right now.

My local neurologist wants me to try an antihistamine medication called Pitozifen for prevention, but it is not on the market in the US. He gave me a prescription I can have filled in Canada, but I'm a bit at a loss for how to find a reputable store to use that will do mail order and ship to the US.

If I can't sort that situation out, I'd rather just try a similar medication called Periactin that I *think* I can readily get in the US. Or perhaps try something more common that I have never tried such as Verapamil or Trileptal.

I have an appointment with my local neuro on Monday, so maybe we can sort this out then.

I just want to get better and I'm tired of being on this medical treatment treadmill.
