Good morning all,
I've been suffering with intense migraines for the past three years. Lately it's been happening more often than normal, like 10 a month. I've switched PCP (Primary Care Physician) to help me with my migraines. The new dr has put me on Nortriptyline 10mg/BID at night. (I take two at bedtime). Yesterday I had killer migraine that I had to take my Fiorecet three times yesterday along with phenergen. Well when I went to bed, I thought I would take the Nortriptyline. I woke up feeling great! I know it's day one but have any of you taking this type of therapy? Did it help? I've done my research and it says it causes weight gain? Has anyone had that? Any other side effects you've had taking it?
I'm allergic to all "Triptan-based" (Imitrex, Axert, Treximet, Frova, Amerge, Relpax, Zomig, Maxalt)drugs along with DHE. It has the reverse affects on me and my migraine goes up a ten fold!!! I projectile vomit and my head feels like its gonna blow off my head, hurts beyond repair!! No lie. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!! Have a nice day!!
