Waking up between 4 and 5am every morning is not fun. I’m averaging 3 hours less sleep than normal a day. Still quite agitated throughout the day. Extra energy, racing thoughts, hard to relax, spending too much money. Hypomania, I guess.
I’m tapering off the topamax starting tonight per my nuerologist’s instructions. Not sure if it really helps anyway and figure it isn’t the best for my kidneys. Hoping it doesn’t increase migraine frequency or negatively affect my mood.
He wants me to try Botox for migraine treatment prevenitive. I only get a few migraines a month now and everything I am reading says Botox is for people who get 15 or more migraines a month.
Have you had Botox for migraine treatment? Did it help?
