Im currently almost 11 weeks pregnant and I've just had 8 days of migraine followed by a day off, then another migraine, then a day off and now a migraine again. I'm worn out. I've had two miscarriages in the past year and I have a 3 year old.
I know that in the States and in some other countries like Germany you are allowed to take Imigran during pregnancy, in the first trimester at least. Apparently there is no data for imigran use in the third trimester.
I usually have Botox but obviously haven't been able to have that for over a year and I'm on 40mg ( down from 150mg) of Amitriptyline which my neurologists has sanctioned. I have chronic migraines amongst other things.
I was just wondering if anyone knew why the UK doesn't support Imigran use during pregnancy? Is it just they have not conducted their own experiments and do not trust 'foreign' data? My mother takes Imigran and its really tempting to take some, I normally have Zomig but I know that is definitely contraindicated for pregnancy so obviously have stopped that. I didn't take anything while pregnant with my daughter and I had a terrible time for the whole pregnancy, since then all this new info about Imigran use has come out.
Any information would be interesting!
