Since i started taking Elavil (amitryptiline 10 mg), my migraines are almost gone. I haven’t taken pain medication for the past 5 weeks (used to take Advil almost daily, sometimes Naproxen and Tylenol) and have only had light headaches. No more flashing lights, less palinopsia, less vertigo and the unbalance i used to have everytime i would turn a corner or change direction is almost gone.
I still have some episodes of light vertigo, but nothing unbearable.
I know some of you can’t take that medication but for those who haven’t tried it, it’s worth a shot.
It improved my life A LOT! And i am even happier of the symptoms change as i have to get my thyroid removed next month as they found what seems to be cancer… so at least in the meantime i don’t have to worry about migraines and vertigo.
Good luck everyone!
