This is my first post here. I have been suffering severe chronic migraines for the past year and a bit and severe chronic headaches with occasional migraine for the past two and a half years. I’m 25 and I live in Australia. I haven’t had a headache free day since October 2015. I’ve seen four neurologists over the years and I found one in May last year that seems interested, even though there’s currently no cure, she is trying to help the best she can. It seems we have come to the end of the line with current treatments until new treatments start coming out. Botox injections failed and many other medications either didn’t work or had terrible side effects. Massage, acupuncture, etc hasn’t worked either.
My problem now is with my night time preventative, Endep. I’m up to a 50mg dose now. While it seems to be making a bit of difference with the severity of my migraines, I’ve started getting, on most nights, very weird dreams. If anyone else gets this, is there anything that can be done about it? I would really like these weird dreams to stop. It scares me to try to come off it and on to another one, because if a migraine were to hit while I wasn’t at home, I would probably need to call an ambulance. Has anyone been able to come off it and on to another preventative? I have spoken to my GP about this and will mention to my neurologist when I go back in June.
