Reference weight gain. A switch to nortriptyline can help. It’s usually a straight swop, no need to come off one and up on the other. Use the forum’s search facility and also read @naejohn’s personal diary.
Glad to hear your good news. Light sensitivity however seems to be an unusual symptom to be left with. Most get left with some version of imbalance and/or tinnitus both of which tend to drag on and on. I had extreme light sensitivity, viz my diary but it was one of first symptoms to reduce for me. Are you sure it’s true light sensitivity, ie photophobia and not Visual Vertigo. Ask this because Ami is a top drug to cure photophobia associated with migraine. I think maybe yours is more Visual Vertigo. Sometimes hard to distinguish. Now that can hang on for some time. If that is the case and you can tolerate it VRT might be way to go if MAV is stable. Suggest you research and try to establish which you are experiencing.
Just read your previous posts and derealisation was discussed, that bright shimmering type thing is derealisation. Not the eyes but the brain. Helen
Btw Also noticed your user card still states ‘Verapamil’.
