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.

Thsi med has worked great for me. Originally the doctor had me on 20 mg in the morning then 40mg at night and i was just overly exaughsted. So now instead of taking two doses throughout the day I take one dose of the slow release at night and it has worked wonders since. Its amaizing i no longer wake up at 2-3 am with a migrane and it helps me sleep in general.

Comment:
I have been taking this for a little over a year now. While my body was trying to get used to the medication, I had some problems with waking dreams, but that passed. Now my 1-2 migraines a week is closer to 1 every 2-3 months. Those that I do get are significantly reduced in magnitude and easily controlled with Imitrex. Those are mostly due to forgetting the medication for several days in a row.
