In my humble opinion, and I am only going on my experience, if I had been in the clinical trials, at the beginning I would have said the AD or whatever I was taking was working because at first it made me feel better than I was feeling at that point but over time, the effects wore off. So my overrall conclusion was that particular AD did not work. Now did it always not work and did I assume it worked because I wanted it too because I was so tired of feeling bad, perhaps, was I in a suggestive mind set because the doctor said this drug works well and in my mind I set great store by her in my faith in her to provide something to work, maybe. I wanted to get better and fast. Whatever the case maybe be and a placebo may have made me feel better at that particular time too because I wanted it badly, I was so low and hurting. She listened too. No one else was. I never trusted anyone too. This was the first time I asked for help too. I have asked myself all these questions while reading this thread, I might have gotten initally better on a placebo or AD at first but it wasn't maintained and then I got worse. So I concluded that the AD did not work. I think AD's work for some, I have friends on them and they have been on them for years and have tried many. So I guess they work for them. I do believe each body handles things diffferently as I can take certain pain meds and they do nothing regardless how many I take. Why I can't guess. I have tried many different migraine meds over the years and take one most people can't take so I draw the conclusion that drugs must work differently in different people. Thanks for education and the thought provoking discussion. RK
