Hi Kay!  When I got down to <2mg Valium I got several migraines (with aura).  It is scary and very annoying.  Now some buddies would disagree with me, but instead of an Rx for migraine, I slam a tepid coffee (add a little ice to cool it down) or a CocaCola with 3 ibuprofen at the first sight of the aura.  It works for me and my psych dr, who has emphasis in neurology, said this is a fine substitute rather than an Rx.

 

Decide if you'd like to try it the next time you start with a migraine (even if you don't get the aura).  Otherwise, essential oils could work by rubbing on your temples and back of neck - like peppermint oil or Melissa oil.

 

Good luck!  PS:  After 3 months in taper, when I got to an un-therapeutic dose, the migraines stopped.  It's been over 4 months without migraine.  Hopefully you'll experience the same.  Take care.

I get migraines that last for 3 days, and that is not unusual.  I think it's common while tapering, but migraines are also caused by stress, diet, dehydration, weather, lots of things.

Although caffeine tends to amp up many peoples migraines, there are a percentage (myself included) that gets a little relief from it.  That being said, my migraines have disappeared since I began tapering.  (I have had some headaches that were worse than my worst migraines, due to severe muscle spasms in my jaw bones).  Apparently GABA can cause migraines.

Thank you very much everyone, finally stopped after a short sleep..but I got it again when I was doing game with ipad while ago..  Thank you, jeanermouse I'll try essential oils. I ordered them just now. and sunday, yes as you say I was thirsty while I was out. Im surprised that I am getting sensitive to many things like that but i feel a relief to know it stops as you get to lower dose. I really hope so Thanks again.  :smitten:
