Migraine with monthly period ugh!!

I never known that you can get migraine when you have your period day oh dear that’s my word for it. that’s a worse scenario that I ever had since I had my migraine rather than the normal chronic migraine. but with both its much painful to bear I should say. I can’t function straight with mind and body its like I’m hunted by my own body so speak. This is during my period day.With before and after I had episodes of auras or I yawn a lot, irritability,craving for food, headaches,involuntary movement of my eye etc. that’s why my doctor suggest to prescribe me Triptans are another option. These drugs block pain signals in your brain. They can start to work as soon as 2 hours after you take them.Your doctor may suggest that you take both an NSAID and a triptan to get relief. If your period comes every month like clockwork, you can start these drugs a few days before your bleeding starts and continue for 2 weeks. If your period doesn’t always stick to a schedule, your doctor may suggest you try a drug that will prevent a headache from happening in the first place.

Frovatriptan is a headache medicine that narrows blood vessels around the brain. Frovatriptan also reduces substances in the body that can trigger headache pain, nausea, sensitivity to light and sound, and other migraine symptoms.

Frovatriptan is used to treat migraine headaches. Frovatriptan will only treat a headache that has already begun. It will not prevent headaches or reduce the number of attacks.

Frovatriptan should not be used to treat a common tension headache, a headache that causes loss of movement on one side of your body, or any headache that seems to be different from your usual migraine headaches. Use this medicine only if your condition has been confirmed by a doctor as migraine headaches.

Frovatriptan may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

You should not use this medicine if you have uncontrolled high blood pressure, heart problems, certain heart rhythm disorders, a history of heart attack or stroke, or circulation problems that cause a lack of blood supply within the body.

Do not take frovatriptan within 24 hours before or after using another migraine headache medicine.

You should not use frovatriptan if you are allergic to it, or if you have:

  • severe or uncontrolled high blood pressure;
  • past or present heart problems;
  • history of coronary artery disease, heart attack, or stroke, including “mini-stroke”;
  • Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome or other heart rhythm disorder;
  • a blood vessel disorder or circulation problems that cause a lack of blood supply within the body; or
  • a headache that seems different from your usual migraine headaches.

To make sure frovatriptan is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have:

  • liver or kidney disease;
  • high blood pressure, a heart rhythm disorder; or
  • coronary heart disease (or risk factors such as diabetes, menopause, smoking, being overweight, having high cholesterol, having a family history of coronary artery disease, being older than 40 and a man, or being a woman who has had a hysterectomy).

It is not known whether this medicine will harm an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant.

It is not known whether frovatriptan passes into breast milk or if it could harm a nursing baby. You should not breast-feed while using this medicine.

Frovatriptan is not approved for use by anyone younger than 18 years old.

Just took this today I had a bad migraine attack with my first period day. Seriously can’t do anything but I have to try my best because I got to my little one who needs me.
