I was diagnosed with vestibular migraines last month with 24/7 symptoms of dizziness, head pressure, fatigue, nausea, anxiety etc etc. My first preventative med was Amitriptyline. I took 10mg for 2 weeks with no effect, so upped to 20mg. It made my migraine symptoms worse tenfold. Every single day i took 20mg i felt worse and worse. I couldn’t stand it after 4 days so came off it. It was the worst i’ve ever felt with VM and i’ve had it for six years now. So the gp has given me Nortriptyline to try. So i would like to ask if any of you have taken Ami but found it really bad, or of no help, and tried Nort instead. Did it produce the same effect or did it make you feel better?
Thanks for your time.
