I have been taking sumatriptan for migraine for about 6 years now. I find it works at the time (the migraine symptoms go away as long as I keep taking the tablets) and I feell better after the normal migraine period (48 hrs) BUT I am now finding that the following day I start another migraine behind the other eye. This is not something that has ever happened to me before, My migraines have always been monthly or at worst fortnightly. I am finding that 5 consecutive days of being ill is really destructive - my morale and my relationships suffer and it is making work very difficult. It is getting so I am scared to take the sumatriptan because I am afraid it is just postponing the inevitable collapse and I don't know any more what ot say to friends and colleagues - I used to be able to say talk to me in two days time when the migraine will be over but I can't say that with confidence any more. Has anyone else had this experience? Is it the sumatriptan or are my migraines just getting worse? I am 57 and post menopausal so also have hot flushes to contend with - which are also worse when I have a migraine. I know my migraines are not as frequent as some people's but the thought that they might be getting worse makes me so fed up.
