SandDune Posted September 24, 2007 Share Posted September 24, 2007 Why did the village idiot keep hitting his head with a hammer? 'Cause it was _so_ nice when he stopped. It happened again.... Depressed to hell and gone all week, then a migraine breaks through the migraine preventative (nadolol/corgard). No surprise actually. Depression precedes nearly all of my migraines. The fact that this bout of depression had an unusually good cause, (very bad news on the dental front), might suggest that the depression causes the migraine. Anyhoo. I hit it with a sumatriptan day one and the migraine mostly goes away. It comes back sort of and sticks around for three days, eventually gets so bad I hit it again with a sumatriptan. Migraine goes away. Then for about 6 hours I get happy. Really just plain wow! Undepressed. Not high, not manic, not ecstatic, just Alive, just Ok not suicidal for a change. Nice! If I could just be that way all the time things would be really really Good. Now according to the Wikipedia, Sumatriptan is structurally similar to serotonin, and is a 5-HT (5-HT1D) agonist, which is one of the receptors to which serotonin binds. Question: What the hell must I take to stay in that nice state? Please please please tell me.
