[quote=Peaceful1tou;859160]I have had migraines for approx. 20 years. As I get older (I am 51) they seem to be getting worse and more frequent. I am on hormone replacement therapy so that should not be an issue.
My Dr put me in Inderal 40mg 2 x's a day about 4 months ago. The first 6 weeks or so it seemed to really help. Now not so much. I am also gaining weight. Ok, I know I'm in my 50's now but I've gained 6 pounds in as many weeks.
I've cut back on junkfood, I do not drink sodas and I started exercising. I have never had a weight problem before.
Can anyone suggest another prevention med? I take Relpax when I get a migraine but my Ins. Co will only help pay for 8 tablets a month. I usually have 10-15 a month. I also have Phenagran or Zofran for the nausea.
Any other suggestions would be great too!
Hi, sorry about your headaches and lousy insurance restrictions.
I have PCS and have been on topomax over 2 1/2 years for my migranes and it has helped me tremendously. I don't think I have any side effects from it. I have other problems that are not great, not related to med, I hope.
