I know my neuro gave me a list of three daily meds to ask the pedi about to prevent migraines - Topomax, something with an E (enalapril, elavil?), and something else. The pedi wanted me to stay away from Topomax, but the other two were ok. I don't want to start a daily med right now. He said Imitrex was ok as long as you pump and dump for at least 4 (and preferably 6) hours after as it clears your system pretty quickly. So I have that on hand if they get really bad, otherwise I'm trying to just use Advil until we are weaned.
I reference this chart usually.

As I read it, it's ok to take occationally while bfing (just not during pregnany). They don't recommend taking it all the time, which I don't.

Thankfully I've only had a hand full of migraines since Emma was born.

Re: Garnet Gab -July- Monthly Chat

unfortunatley i get migraines every single time AF shows. Which of course had to be yesterday. I thought it would be better today, it usually is on CD2, but unfortunately it's worse. I got up to get ready for church this morning, quickly figured out I still had my migraine and almost passed out at the top of the stairs when I tried to go get ready anyway...needless to say kids and I stayed home and are (im)patiently waiting for DH to get out of class so i can have a nap

Ah see I read it as being categorized at the same level as Imitrex, which our pedi said to pump and dump after, so I haven't been taking either. Maybe I misunderstood the chart?

Hope he is home by now. Those are the kind I get, though they have gotten worse with each pregnancy. Of course the pregnancy and breast-feeding hormones don't help any. I pretty much always have a low-grade headache now, and in the past it's gotten worse when AF returned (still waiting here). My neuro wanted to try a daily medication, but since they are ok but not great to take while BFing I'm trying to wait.

Re: Garnet Gab -July- Monthly Chat

Katie, congratulations!! Wonderful news.

On a good news note, Luke stood up today! He's been working on pulling up & also working hard on just standing up in the middle of the room. He finally pulled himself up today! He started clapping recently & it's really cute. On a down note, he must be teething more. He's had 2 teeth since mid-june but he's awfully cranky.

Thanks ladies!

Can't believe we have crawling babies and babies already starting to pull up and stand! Coop is perfectly content rolling around on the ground.
