I was on Zonegran (100 mg up to 300 mg) for a little over a year as a migraine preventative and it did nothing. In fact, I truly believe it made the migraines that I did have worse. I was also given Esgic to take at the onset of a migraine but BC powder worked better so I just didn’t bother with the Esgic.
After a year of trial, I went back to my neuro two weeks ago and ALL of my meds have been changed. I’m now on Propranolol (20 mg morning and night) and Maxalt to take at the onset. I’m working off of the Zonegran also and should be done in two more weeks. Has anyone had any luck with Propranolol as a preventative and Maxalt as a rescue?
