Hi everyone

Hoow your all less dizzy and having better days. I've been doing ok.

Saw my oto ENT today to check how I did with the eply I had 2 weeks ago for bppv episode I had. Doing better. Yay!!!!! Anywho....I told him I didn't take the nortriptyline and he was ok with it, but suggested trying the propranolol 10mgs to start. I wa curios if your taking it how is working for you? I understand it can also help with anxiety so that's a plus. I'm being very hopeful that it will help. I will be starting it Friday night. He wants me take it before bed, I guess it may cause some tiredness. Can anyone give me any info? Thanks for your help

    Morning patty. You take the propranalol before bed as its slows your heart rate and make you feel relaxed. It's a beta blocker as such . The only problem I had with it was that my blood pressure dropped really low however it does work for a lot of people. Some of my friends are on them for migraines and have no issues at all

    As you probably remember, I take propranolol for MAV/vestibular migraine. I started at 10mg, and now take 40. It has helped. But occasionally when things flare up, I have to take my klonopin which stops my dizziness.

    I was a little slow and mellow at first, but then no real side effects except some weight gain (but many of the migraine meds can cause weight gain).
