I had another torturous migraine last night. All day yesterday I felt increased pressure around my head, and then out of nowhere, it exploded into horrible pain. I felt really sick to my stomach and I took migraine medicine IMMEDIATELY. I waited a couple hours, but the pain didn’t let up. I happened to have some anti-nausea medicine that the ER had prescribed me a while ago, so I took that as well.
Usually I check online to see if I can mix medications. There’s an online drug interaction checker. (Of course it doesn’t substitute a doctor or pharmacist’s advice, but when it’s 2 AM, it’s so convenient!)
TURNS OUT, I am NOT supposed to mix those 2 medications because it could possibly interact badly. There is a chance that it could have very harmful effects… and potentially–extremely rarely, but still possibly–even be fatal.
So this is my story. I wanted to share this with you because us chronic pain peeps need to be SO careful when it comes to mixing meds.
Luckily, I survived. Still Kelly Alive. And by this afternoon, I even managed to get rid of most of the head pain.
