I have had migraines for approximately 15 years. They have increased in the past few years I think (know) this is connected to the menopause. Throughout the years GP prescribed various meds - triptans etc. I was experiencing weekly migraines and the drugs helped with aura and subsequent pain, but I am looking for a miracle cure that prevents the migraines happening- unrealistic I know!! Having read up on 5HTP (from Holland and Barratt, (or other natural remedy companies), I decided to try them. Since the end of April this year, I have only had 2 migraines (one yesterday- still recovering today but obviously nearly there as I can use my laptop and look at the screen!). I have told my GP about taking 5HTP, and he seemed OK with that. Clearly it hasn't cured my migraines, but it has given me some respite from this debilitating condition, which you can only understand if you have experience of migraines.
