I need some help. My husband has Adult ADD. He has been on Adderall 20 mg for about two years now. Since Oct 10, he has had these horrible headaches. Now mind you he does get migraines, but these headaches aren't like his"normal" migraines. Any migraine medicine he takes doesnt work. I call our primary doc and he put him on more nuerotin and furicet (spelled wrong). both medications did nothing. At the ER he was given the migraine cocktail and of course it didnt work. He would take his adderall, go to bed and wake up without the headache for a few hours anyway. The last 4 days that even stopped working. The last ER visit he was given two powerful narcotics and they made the headache worse. the was givien an older med and it worked for a few hours. This morning he took 40 mg of adderall and after 20 minutes the headache went away. so far it hasnt come back. Now his doc wants to see us in the office tomorrow morning... kinda freaking out.. any suggestions or comments?View Thread
My husband has been on adderall for his adult add. For the past few months he has had these horrible headaches. Mind you he gets migraines, but these headaches are nothing like it. To cope he has been taking 20 mg of the adderall, goes back to bed for a few hours and then wakes up with no headache. After about 6 hours the headaches come back. The past 4 days that didnt work. I took him to the er twice in the last 24 hours. he was given two powerful narcotics and they made his headache worse. He was finally given something,( cant remember what). The headache went away, but of course came back. He took 40 mg of adderall this morning and the headache went away after 20 minutes. So far it hasnt come back.View Thread
