I've been on antidepressants on and off since I was 18, I'm now 30, and have been on Citalopram 20mg for six years, last year it was increased to 30mg, then shortly after I started gettin really bad migraines on a monthly basis.
The dose was lowered back to 20mg at the beginning of this year, and I hadn't had a migraine since until a couple of weeks ago when I had two in one week. Also, I had noticed that in the previous few months my mood had been very low and I had been getting anxious.
i went back to see my doctor last week and I've come off Citalopram, and he's started me on 150mg Trazodone once a day at night, and then 10mg Propranalol three times a day.
I cannot cope with this Trazodone, but I've only been on it a week and I'm worried I will be told it's not long enough - I've had a constant headache, dizziness, nausea, unable to concentrate, light and noise hurts, I just feel like crying I feel so rubbish physically.
I'm going to go back to the doctors, but it takes ages to get an appointment, so in the meantime I was thinking of stopping the Trazodone (I can't take another day feeling like this), go back on 20mg Citalopram and continue with the Propranalol to help with the anxiety (and my doctor said it also helps prevent migraines).
Has as anyone had any experience with Trazodone? Has anyone suffered from migraines on Citalopram? I was considering asking going on Fluoxetine instead, but it's also am SSRI so I'm worried it will also cause migraines.
If if anyone has any experience of advice I would really appreciate it.
