Women with CH in General Board Posted December 27, 2018 · Report reply @CHMom Hmm.. I was on prednisone for a month in the beginning w/sumatriptan for the pain, now on topamax w/zomig which seems to be working better than the prednisone. I take D3 (10,000 mg/day), melatonin (10mg/night), magnesium, etc. and still get at least one headache a day and I'm feeling pretty lucky because it's better than the 7-8 I used to get back in October/early November. The one a day used to be pretty regular at about 3:30 AM, then they got pretty unreliable for awhile and went up to 2-3 a day before I went on the topamax. Since I went on the melatonin, the one the wakes me up still wakes me up but it's not really bad enough to need the zomig/sumatriptan and can usually go back to sleep. I sometimes get a second one between 2-3 PM and sometimes I need the shot of zomig/sumatriptan and sometimes an extra strength tylenol does the trick - but the D3 doesn't seem to be doing anything and I'm pretty sure if I stopped the topamax I'd be back to 7-8 headaches a day.... unless there's something additional about the D3 I don't know about? The last time I had these they started in November and stopped in January but if it doesn't stop raining here I'm pretty sure they're going to keep continuing LOL... We're going skiing in February and I'm hoping they either stay the same or go away. I agree though, I think they'll be gone by the spring. I've always always had issues with the fall season with allergies and had trouble with the time change and sleeping so I'm thinking my 40 year CH free was just luck. Happy New Year!!
