    @FLBlonde93:  I didn’t get one on my wedding day, I just felt like I was going to faint the ENTIRE day!  2 Days later I was sick in the bed with the flu so that might explain that tho….

    @FLBlonde93:  Believe it or not, but having a cup of coffee black! no sugar or milk and some tylenol helps me. I would tell you to have a cup of joe and take a nap but you won’t be able to nap on your wedding day

    @FLBlonde93:  Get thee to your doctor for some better meds.  I take Treximet and that big blue pill is my lifesaver.

    I woke up the morning of our wedding with a migraine.  Yay.  Took my big blue pill, slept a little more, and I was good to go.  Had some breakfast, got my hair done, etc, etc. 

    Make sure to stay hydrated!!  I drank tons of water and that helped keep it from coming back. 

    I also drank tons of champagne at the reception and a few shots at the afterparty.  That let to a hangover/migraine the next day… another blue pill and lunch at the hotel and I was good to go again.  Just don’t let it ruin your day!  I was determined to not feel it even if it did come back during the wedding or reception.

    (It was 95deg when we got married outside, and one of my triggers is beating sunshine and heat.  It actually probably helped that it was also hot and humid at the reception – in a greenhouse – since going right into someplace dry and cold will give me a migraine)

    I do have occasional aural migraines, and I felt migrainy last night no less. But it didn’t quite go over into classic migraine or bust symptoms, thank goodness. I’m crossin my fingers for next weekend.

    @almostmrsj:  I totally have to agree here.  I suffered for years on just excedrin migraine and what for?? I’m on Maxalt now and it is honestly a game changer.  I feel like a total numpty face for holding out like I did.

    @FLBlonde93:  Mine are only triggered by stress, so I think I will be okay.

    @almostmrsj:  This is awesome thank you! I have those pills but just recently got them and was wondering if they work/should I save them for the wedding. THANKS!

    I thought I would get one on my wedding day, as I was super-stressed. I went for the pre-emptive strike and took my migraine meds first thing upon waking that morning. I figured doing it once in my life wouldn’t hurt me. I did not get a migraine, so I guess it worked! I also drank a ton of water.

    @FLBlonde93:  It’s a big step to admit they are really that bad, but honestly they will help you SO much.  Plus it’s good to start them ahead of time.  I had some nasty side effects with Imitrex, and had to switch.

    @FLBlonde93:  I’d just take my preventative meds if I thought there was even a slight risk.

    I get migraines but thankfully did not get one on my wedding day.  I did have a mild headache during the afternoon, but I suspect it was due to dehydration.
