Migraines and Medicines

October 18th, 2016 at 07:28 am

Lately, I've been having really bad migraines. They only seem to come in the evening and they feel dull/far away in the mornings. I'm not sure if it's dehydration, stress, or something else. They've been accompanied by a slightly nauseous feeling, but I find that once I eat dinner, the nauseous feeling goes away.

Starting 10/1, I switched to DH's insurance with the Army Reserves. However, I found out yesterday that my birth control isn't covered at retail facilities. One of my allergies is actually a dollar and change cheaper, but the 3-month generic birth control rang up at $150!!! Turns out, it is covered, but it's 50/mo at retail facilities. The home delivery option is 49/mo, so not any better. I'm going to call the military pharmacy tonight and see if they carry it as it is free at military pharmacies, but there was a note that the pharmacy may not carry it.

Once I get that sorted, I'm going to see about signing up for the home delivery option for all my maintenance meds except the birth control. When I visit my OBGYN early next year, I'm going to find out if there might be a better option that won't require me to drive 45 minutes to base just to get it.

    Sorry about the migraines. There are a multitude of triggers. Some people get them from cheese or wine. Other people get them from being overtired. Mine used to come from stress and often times hormones as in that time of the month. Not sure how you handle caffeine, but a cup of coffee in the morning often helps me -- doubly. The caffeine helps my asthma as well as migraine prevention.

    Have you had your blood pressure checked lately? That sounds like the type of headache you can get when your blood pressure is too high. Might be worth checking out. A lot of pharmacies have those free blood pressure check chairs where you stick your arm in a tube.

    My DH is a vet and has some of his medications mailed to him from the VA. He does sometimes have to pay something, but it's not a lot.
