Advice & Tips: My migraines started in 2008 out of nowhere and every medication I've tried we've maxed out and switched to the next, max out, move on....I think I'm on my 9th or 10th migraine medication. I used to go to emerg for tapentadol and stemtol by IV, but that started giving me the shakes and I'd feel sick for days after and still get migraines, and now the propranolol is not working anymore and I'm almost at the max dose.
