Does anyone have experience of using this drug? I was put on it a couple of weeks ago for my migraines, and a few bizarre things have happened...

    I suggest you speak to your GP. He/she knows you best.

    I've noticed a drastic improvement in my migraines, but I've been having very distressing dreams...

    I was prescribed pizotifen in the spring of 2008 starting on a low dose and gradually increasing it over a period of 6 weeks. During that time I felt permanently stoned, I was sleepy, forgot to do things, had very vivid dreams. It was a very strange time but it did only last a few months, after that things were fine no more dreams and my memory returned to normal. I do still get migraine headaches but they are nothing by comparison, in fact if one comes on at work I can usually get through the rest of the day, drive home and then take the zomig.

    It's helping the migraines, but the dreams aren't getting any better
