Cherry, Have your doctor's tried Topamax as a daily preventitive? It is typically used for seizures, but works well to keep away migraines as a side effect. My migraines are genetic, and when I get a break through it can last up to 5 weeks, but typically the Topamax is all I need, with an occasional injection of Immitrex. Nothing touches the nystagmus once it hits, but as I am at home recovering from breast cancer, I have the luxury of not worrying about a job right now.

Best of Luck to you!
