81mg of aspirin seems to reduce my migraines. When I am very symptomatic I get a sore neck, blurry vision and minor headache. Aspirin seems to reduce this, which in turn reduces the dizziness, vertigo and other issues.
I am able to have above average (not 100% of course) days on aspirin. After 4 years of career ending dizziness and vertigo a simple aspirin seems to be my favorite drug. After about an hour my vision clears up and my dizziness becomes more tolerable. I haven’t tried it on a really bad day, but I suspect it would make me feel at least average.
I still get positional vertigo and nystagmus. However, I am not as bothered by it.
Here’s my question:
Should I still consider effexor? My mood is alright. What will it help with?
The reason for my apprehension is because I took it last year and it made me feel terrible. However, I saw Dr. Hain and he wants me to try taking 1/3 of a capsule at a time (or perhaps smaller). This was before I discovered the power of aspirin.
