Comment:
My daughter took this for frequent severe migraines. She started at 10mg twice a day and never increased the dose. It was a miracle for her migraines, but about a week after starting it she experienced fatigue, extreme fogginess, and felt "outside herself" several times a day, so we are trying something else. Definitely worth a try though. The side effects stopped within four days of dis ... Show Full Comment

This medication was a life saver for my migraines. I was getting them at least 4 days a week and even waking me up suddenly in the middle of the night and some would last for several days. I would be bed ridden with debilitating pain, vomiting, nausea and extreme sensitivity to light, sound, and just to rotate in bed. I had been prescribed several other medications to prevent them, but nothing see ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Totally stopped migraines I suffered with for over 40 years. 80 mg extended release once per day with no detectable adverse side effects. I already had low blood pressure 113/67 and it didn't change. If I even get a headache I can take some tylenol or aspirin and know it will not turn into a migraine. Peace of mind changed everything and took this monkey off my back.

Comment:
Does not reduce frequency, or intensity, of migraines. Does not lower blood pressure. Migraine frequency, and blood pressure, are both increased. Extreme fatigue and lethargy. I can not get things done, that are imperative to accomplish. Extreme itchiness for first several months. Joint aches. Blurry vision. Propranolol does not work for me, and the side effects are intolerable.
