Can I ask how many milligrams of the propanolol you're taking? This seems to be one of the only pills that doesn't give me side effects, but I can't take the dose the doctor says I should take because then my bp gets too low. He prescribed 80 mg/day. I have to cut that into quarters (20mg) for my bp to maintain around 105/68 (approx). But I think my doc said that cutting into quarters wouldn't be enough to prevent the migraines,.View Thread
Yes I will let you know... my appt. is this coming Thursday. He's probably going to look at me like an addict, but I'm not, I'm just desperate to live a normal life again, and I'm sure you all know what I mean if you've been suffering from migraines for so many year. I've been very careful and checking my blood pressure -- it has risen it a little, but I also have Inderal (bp medicine) and if I take that every night my bp seems to be excellent. I know I am probably playing with fire here treating myself, but I've only had to take one migraine pill (maxalt) in a week, when before it's been about 3 per week. I have read where adderall has helped some people with depression so I'm wondering maybe i am a little depressed, however, I always thought it was the migraines that would cause the depression! lol Anyway, I will update you all as soon as I can. Thanks for your responses.View Thread
