Something that is mentioned often on this forum is sensitivity to medication. Whilst I can tolerate most medication, I do find that I can have some quite unusual side affects. For example Ami, which can be used for insomnia and often causes drowsiness, actually seemed to keep me awake if I took it too close to going to bed. I also think it caused me to sleep walk every few days although that may just be a coincidence that the sleep walking increased at the same time as taking the ami. Also Non drowsy cold medication often makes me fall asleep.
I’ve noticed that I also react to other items. For example small amounts of coffee or energy drinks gives me far too much energy. Alcohol just makes me sad and want to cry. I’ve always had these reactions to coffee and alcohol even before the MAV.
I was wondering if it was pretty common for the med sensitive people on the forum to be sensitive and to react to other items too? Or in fact if it was common to everyone with migraine whether they are sensitive to medication or not?
