Hi, Would be interested to know other members prescription of Topiramate ? mine is 100mg a day 50mg on a morning and 50mg at night, but i am still suffering badly with 04.00am attacks every night and think it needs to be increased? i have Sumatriptan injections which are a life saver, i also have Oxygen which i cant decide whether or not it works for me or not as yet? i think my dose is relatively small or am i wrong? are some people on a lot higher? Thanks David

Can you describe what you mean by this, David?
Hi David, What i mean by that is when i have tried the oxygen while having a headache it does not seem to work for me as quickly compared to Sumatriptan! whether or not i am giving it long enough i do not know? how long do you inhale the oxygen for before you notice any improvement in condition? Thanks David
Do you have a demand valve? This aborts attacks very much faster. It's usually about 20 minutes on high flow oxygen but a demand valve cuts this down to 6 minutes in my experience. It depends on whether you can get it in your area. Check with your 02 supplier.
Hello. For me, Sumatriptan injection is the most useful treatment for an attack. However, this is generally prescribed at a maximum of two per day ... and I can have up to 8 attacks in a day. Oxygen tends to work in 5-15 minutes and is useful as an alternative.
