Sorry, had to give up feeding the baby the breast as often had to take various pain medications that are not compatible with breastfeeding. Unable to withstand such a situation, I turned for help to an experienced neurologist. The doctor said that the seizures I frequent and some pills for pain I can't do it, you need to take preventive treatment. The specialist prescribed me a drug has Vazobral 1 tablet 2 times a day. The first month there were no changes. I already wanted to quit these drugs, since they are not cheap, but noticed, that attack hasn't been for two weeks. The reception I went and have not regretted. The next 3 months I had only 2 migraine attacks and it is not very strong. Have vasobral the doctor prescribed me for 6 months, then will need to take a break. I hope that the pain will not return.”

As explained by the therapist, it's not that scary, but my health says otherwise. The doctor prescribed me a drug Vazobral one pill twice a day. After two weeks of taking high blood pressure returned to normal, stopped fainting and headache, I as if anew was born. Take Vazobral for 3 months and very grateful to the doctor for the advice.”
