I have at last had a couple of sleeping nights!
i have used a 5mg orodispersable zolmitriptan as a preventative on a number of nights now, (5x) and each time I have had no night time CH.
2x I have also used them in a day, when I have known that I have a day ahead where other options will be difficult, one was I was driving from Carlisle to London, and the other was a full day sailing course that I was booked onto. On each occasion it kept the CH at bay for at least 6 hours..... Afterwards I had recurring CHs for a period of 4 hours ..... But that happens most evenings and nights anyway!
so my question is..... I know that these tablets would not work as an abortive (too slow) but would there be a harm/risk if I were to use them more regularly as a preventative?
my concern of cause is dependence or tolerance developing.... But if I use them occasionally in this way, how harmful could it be.
im aware that A problem with this idea, is that if I do get a CH within a couple of hours of taking the tablet, I wouldn't be able to use the injection as an abort method, but so far that hasn't been a problem.
id value others thoughts on this.... And a word of warning the orodispersable zolmitriptan taste disgusting!!! But easily worth it for the hours that I am getting pain free.thanx
