My response to your question is a tough one…and again, let me be honest, the effects could TOTALLY BE PLACEBO.
I did not expect the vitamins to have any effect, totally figured they’d be a waste of money, so if it is placebo effect, it must be a strong one :o but it still could have nothing to do with the Migravent.
After about two months of taking the vitamins 2x/day (they recommend 3x but I take in a.m. and p.m. and never remember mid day, so gave up on that dose) I noticed at some point that I wasn’t miserable 24/7. I still had issues with fatigue, frequent (I get mild ones) headache and disequilibrium but it wasn’t constant and I realized there were actually a few days when I barely noticed it at all–and this was PRE migraine prescriptions. YOu know how you try tons of things and watch to see what might be the “change” factor? Well, having tried several different things and not noticed any difference–the only thing I could put a finger to was this multi-vitamin.
Like I said, it was one of the reasons I decided that the migraine diagnosis might not be totally “whack.” (Excuse the very old slang euphamism).
Now I am on Topomax 100mg/day, a dose I just got up to two weeks ago. They say it takes up to 2 months at that dosage to see a real difference. I swear that I’ve already had periods of time when I feel near 100%–then times when I feel like CRAP, like I’ll never drag out of this quagmire–but since I have not given the actual RX a full trial yet, and have already seen improvement I figure–good things to come!!!
