What is the best cure for migraines during pregnancy? They have given me shots of Demoral and Midrin. I don't want anything to harm my baby, but I also can't handle these headaches every day.
The older and newer drugs for migraines have been problemmatic in pregnancy because of potential harm to the baby. The narcotics, although having a risk, albeit small, have been time honored. Midrin is not contraindicated in pregnancy, according to a 1984 study, "The Biochemical Effects of Drugs in Pregnancy."
I would think that if your headaches are so tricky to get rid of, you should ask your OB to refer you to a neurologist for an opinion as to possible combinations of safe, antimigraine drugs.
