Although I am still having daily headaches they do seem to be less severe and dont last all day, BUT I experinced weird non-violent dreams, weight gain, dry mouth and eyes, and really bad dizzy spells. I also have random anxious thoughts, so it seems that this is NOT the pill for me, too many of the side effects.

I have been a chronic migraine sufferer for 10 years now and I can not seem to find anything to get rid of them. This medicine does not do a single thing for me, and It does not prevent my migraines. I still get them just a frequently as not taking the pill and im on 80mg 4x/day. Topamax,Zomig,and Fioricet has not worked either, I guess im S.O.L for the rest of my life :(

This medication has decreased my migraines from having at least 4 a month to maybe 2 a year. I highly recommend Propranolol for migraine prevention.
