I thought I’d check in and give a little update.
I am still symptom-free nearly all the time
On 6mg Candesartan and 2.5mg Pizotifen daily. I’ve been having some side effects from Candasartan (nearly blacking out occasionally when going from bent over like tying shoelaces to standing up rapidly) but these are tolerable as not too frequent.
Still on Keto diet.
A handful of mini-migraine auras lasting not more than an hour each over the last few months, notably when I stopped candesartan for a few days. But that’s all! Amazing!
I’m not ready to come off the meds yet, although I really want to, I’m going to wait until Dr S says the time is right.
Overall, I just feel pretty normal nearly all the time.
I hope this gives you some encouragement if you are out there feeling as sh*t as I was 2 years ago…
Good luck everybody. Persevere, keep trying different meds to find what’s right for you. And cut the stress as much as you possibly can.
