    I was put on nitroglycerin patches 5 months ago and much to my amazement, my migraines have stopped! Has anyone else had this experience? I used to have 8 – 12 migraines a month, so this is really significant! I want to know if this will keep the migraines at bay or is it just a temporary side effect? If it is not, then other people need to know about this!!

    Hi slapril,

    Thank you for your question and being part of our discussion forum! Welcome.

    I do know nitroglycerin can trigger a migraine attack, but I’ve not heard of it preventing them. Having said that, that doesn’t mean it’s not possible.

    I’ll keep my fingers crossed for your continued success of reduced migraine frequency and severity.
