ASK DR. MOLLY

Can I take Imitrex and Ubrelvy together for my migraine attacks?

Taking a triptan, like Imitrex, and a gepant, like Ubrelvy, together has not been studied in clinical trials. However, they have different mechanisms of action and are not contraindicated to take together. The combination may work better for some individuals than taking either by itself.

My Botox wears off after 10 weeks but my insurance will only let me come in every 12 weeks. What can I do during the 2 weeks that it is wearing off?

There are several options for this 2-week period. One is to come into our office for a nerve block or for a Toradol injection. Another option is to go on a preventive during that 2-week period-an example would be Nurtec every other day. The best strategy is to call our office and set up an appointment to discuss treatment options to lessen your migraine burden during that wearing off period.
