I was finally diagnosed with migraines after suffering from daily headaches for nearly a year. I started taking Amitriptyline and I swear the first day I slept like a baby. It gave me instant relief from the pain and helped me sleep as I had been getting 3-4 hours of interrupted sleep over the last 9-10 months. The problem is that I also instantly gained weight. I was switched to topirimate which started out ok but now my symptoms are slowly coming back.
Has this happened to anyone else? I will contact my dr again but it would be nice to hear from others who experience migraines. None of my family/friends are migraine sufferers. I feel silly about the weight issue but wonder if I should go back? I also don’t want these awful headaches so I hope there is something else available. Thank you.
