Migraines since 20, now 57. Used to be menstrual and mid-cycle, but post-menopause and they still attack me. Triggers : stress; lack of sleep (not partying, just insomnia and anxiety); possibly alcohol but low tolerance anyway and sometimes can drink a little and no ensuing migraine. About 7 years ago was given a Zomig by a friend and loved it since then. Not only does it dispense with migraine for about 24 hours, I also feel chilled and usually can sleep too. Concerned though about taking it too often, have been very stressed lately, sleep terrible and migraines 2/3 a week. Tried Amitriptylene for a week, made me so drowsy I couldn't function at work and felt unsafe driving. Maybe I would have got used to it?? But would have had to take time off work for that period. I would love to feel how I do when Zomig is working ALL of the time. Wondering about asking Doctor for Propanolol - any thoughts on this welcome.
