Migraine Log – Week 6


I’ve now been taking Petadolex for 5 weeks.  I’ve been keeping track of my migraines and my main trigger (bad weather).  Last week I graphed the migraine data collected so far and received a few ideas for a better graph in the comments.  Here’s the updated data presented a bit differently than last week’s:

In this graph, weeks on the line were weeks that I had a migraine every time there was bad weather, weeks above the line are weeks that I had migraines even when there wasn’t bad weather, and weeks below the line were weeks when I didn’t have a migraine every time the weather was bad.  If the medicine works, I would expect later weeks to usually fall below the line.

So far, it doesn’t look like Petadolex is having an effect on my migraines, but it’s really too early to tell.  Most migraine meds take 2 or 3 months to really have an effect and I’m determined to give this drug a chance.  So expect at least 7 more weeks of these graphs…
