All the things/drugs/supplements/protocols I've tried


#1

See below. Thanks all!


EU approval for the new drug, 'Erenumab' (Aimovig)
#2

How many MAV drugs have you failed? Forgive me if I missed it but have you tried Amitriptyline?


#3

Below is a list of my current meds/diet and protocols I’ve tried and then at the end are the MAV drugs I’ve tried including Ami:

List of Current Medications

  • Aimovig: 70mg shot/month; been on 2 months and increasing to 140 for 4 mos (if that doesn’t work then botox for 6 mos then try mixing meds)
  • Lamictal: one 200mg pill, PM
  • Risperdal: one .25 mg, PM
  • DDAVP: one .5 mg pill, AM and one 1mg pill, PM
  • Vitamin D3: one drop or 2,000 IU, AM
  • Vitamin B2: four 100mg tablets, AM
  • Magnesium: 500mg tablet, AM
  • L-tyrosine: 500mg 1-3x, AM/PM as needed for energy, doesn’t help too much
  • B12: 500-1500mg, as needed for energy, doesn’t help too much
  • American ginseng, doesn’t help too much
  • L-tyrosine: 500mg 1-3x, AM/PM as needed for energy

Also, as of 5/25/17, I have been on the below migraine diet as best to my ability. I have not noticed significant changes (maybe I’ve been able to work a bit more and maybe I get dizzier when I go off the diet a little or when I eat certain foods like just olive oil or cheese or MSG foods, but the dizziness still remains and is still debilitating with occasional very bad episodes even with the diet changes):

I have also avoided the following potential sources of MSG to best of my ability as part of the diet:

Breakfast: cup of fat milk, almost ½ cup chia seeds, tbl ginger, ½ cup quick oats (cold; all the previous items seem to help with energy); apple

Lunch: 2-3 carrots, ½ cup chia seeds, some quick oats, 1.75 cups of black beans, some turkey

Snack: part of lunch or some milk and oats/chia seeds (sometimes with some cherrios)

Dinner: ½ cup chia seeds and some quick oats, 1.75 cups of black beans, some turkey, cup or two of spinach

Snack: part of dinner or some milk and oats/chia (sometimes with some cherrios)

  • Protocols I could potentially try still:
    • New CGRP migraine medicines (unsure insurance/medi-cal covers)
    • Korean Gongjin-dan
      • being used in a study for unexplained chronic dizziness in Korea but the study excludes vestibular cases so seems like it’s not worth trying; plus hard to get the full set of it
    • Juicing and consuming the raw cannabis plant: According to an herbalist, “the THCA won’t have the psychoactive effect that is making you feel like you have brain fog. I would do a colon cleanse using a coffee enema as well”
      • Tried juicing for breakfast for week and didn’t notice much change
    • Higher CBD concentrations through a marijuana doctor (have referral from a now-deceased psychiatrist to one such doctor in Napa area but I’m unable to find doctor’s card)
    • TMS therapy for migraines (it’d have to be pricey as out-of-pocket and hasn’t been proven to help with dizziness)
    • Further Tai Chi/Dayan Qigong
    • Core Tendon Guard
    • Neurodevelopmental Treatment
    • Brain Gym
      • Seen a PT who does the above four treatments and she didn’t pursue them

      • Longest I’ve done was a 5-day silent retreat
    • Visit healers in Nepal/Tibet/India
    • Osteopath
    • Endocrinologist, Dr. Eric Gordon, who specializes in the treatment of complicated disorders. My therapist in 2012 was concerned that some of my notable symptoms may be masquerading as psychological when, in reality, there is a medical basis for them which has yet to be properly diagnosed. For example, Dr. Richard Shames, a Harvard-trained endocrinologist, has noted in a book titled, Thyroid Power , an undiagnosed thyroid problem (due to false negative results obtained by insufficiently sensitive TSH tests) could present symptomatically similar to my medical or psychological complaints. Doctors told me to instead see neurologists as my hormone levels are normal, but according to this therapist more sophisticated tests are needed and that I need to see someone who specializes in mystifying illnesses, not just any specialist
      • Though I had my doctor order thyroid tests and the tests that Dr. Thames recommends and all my results were normal

Meds could still potentially try

  • seems combo of meds is last big thing to try before botox
    • combos venlax+propra or topir +verap (avoid same grps)_
  • We never increased Diltiazem CD 120 mg/d
    • increasing as tolerated to 240-480 mg total/d, often in two divided doses. Constipation and hypotension are the most common side effects, but this is often the best-tolerated regimen.
    • From ENT handout
  • Sodium valproate
    • From same handout: 250-500 mg BID is usually well tolerated, but liver function tests and platelets should be monitored.
  • Nadolol
    • handout: “fewer such CNS side effects than propranolol; it is started at 20 mg/d and increased as needed up to 120 mg/d.”
      • My concern depression side-effect
  • UCSF neuro on 1/2014 said he’d reserve keppra for future
  • Gabapentin
    • According to my neurologist’s notes (which he wasn’t the best at) I tried 300mg
    • Handout: at a low dose of 300 mg a day, with weekly escalating doses to a first target dose of 300 mg three times a day (900 mg total). Then it can be increased gradually to another target dose of 1800 mg total a day (in 3 divided doses), or until side effects (usually sedation) appear. It has the inconvenience of frequent dosing, but with a low adverse effect profile. Dosing adjustments are necessary for renal insufficiency
    • My concern is fatigue
  • Nortriptyline up to 200
    • Current neurologist says 100mg is max at 8 weeks which I’ve tried

Goodness me that’s quite a disciplined study!


#5

Wow, I thought I was trying hard to get rid of the dizziness… this is incredible. Yeah, I vote for vestibular rehabilitation (i.e. relaxation) in Mexico and getting some new doctors to re-evaluate your condition.


#6

Omg…thats a blog more than a post !!!


#7

Which is why I’ve moved it into the Personal Diary category :slight_smile:


#8

wow, just one thought, i saw you tried venlafaxine 25mg, but not the extended released and the max dose for it is 150 for migraines, so maybe you could try it by itself first. Also, from my own experience, it is very good with anxiety and depression.


#9

Once I finish my thesis I also plan to move to a beach in mexico and figure out how long I should be away from computers to see if that’s what’s making it worse


#10

Good idea! I think given I’m not the best at tolerating meds or they don’t do much for me I’ll finish the aimovig I’m on as already started it and then try botox as I figure out if that works faster and if those fail then I’ll suggest venlafaxine though if I’m not mistaken most people on here say Ami has been the best for them and I think also helps with depression so I’m leaning towards that as I don’t think I got high on it the first time around and I seem better able to tolerate meds now


#11

Venlafaxine and amitriptyline are both antidepressants. Amitriptyline is renowned for causing significant weight gain. Otherwise, lots of people here like it.


#12

Yea I think I’m going to finish the aimovig trial as only about 4 months left and about 2 mos in and then botox as that’s a 6 month trial then probably get high dose of either venlafaxine or ami (though weight gain sounds meh but I can deal given lots of people seem to like it on here).


#13

Good luck. It’s very good you have a plan. Being informed and having some sense of controlling your fate is important for mental health.


#14

Have you tried activated forms of vitamin folate (B9)? Like folinic acid, or methylfolate? For some people it can mean literally everything for their health problems, so thought I’d suggest at least trying it for a few weeks. My mom got lots of relief from her Fibromyalgia by using methylated B12 and methylfolate. If you try methyl-activated stuff, start with a low dose first because it can cause some anxiety if you aren’t used to it. That’s why I started with folinic acid first.

I use MegaFolinic 0.8mg, 2x per day. It helps a lot with my body anxiety, sleep, skin issues, and perhaps some of my dizziness / headpressure. I’ve heard its important to have B6 and B12 at the same time, so make sure you have a good B multi-vitamin. I like JigSaw Activated B w/SRT because its low in B3 which can make me a little amp’ed up.


#15

I’ve tried a B complex for years and years and that didn’t seem to do anything and it had folic acid in it and my main problem is dizziness and fatigue so not sure it’s worth spending the money on but thanks!


#16

Folic Acid is not the same thing. Some people are unable to convert Folic Acid to a bioavailable form because they lack a specific enzyme. Hence why you need Folinic Acid (not Folic) or Methylfolate.

I totally get it though, its just another vitamin and probably won’t fix everything. But… for some people out there it is the “one thing” that solves most of their health problems. So thought I’d at least bring it up.


#17

Thanks! It was only ten bucks for a different brands folinic (as they didn’t have the brand you mentioned) so I’ll try it after I try the cbd :slight_smile:


#18

If you guys can recommend any products not currently on the mvertigo shop but think should be there, I’d be most grateful!

Proviso is, for now, they need to be on Amazon :slight_smile: Some products are chosen as they are available in more than one territory, so may not be the most popular ‘brand’ in a single territory …


#19

Hello
Im currently trialing Botox. Just had 2nd treatment today 31 injections. I see its something you are planning to give a go in the future. I will keep you updated and let you know if it gives me any benefit from the dizziness. As yet it has massively improved my pain side of Mav but i still suffer daily dizziness…fingers crossed it will eventually have some impact on this as well
