I have been taking this drug for over 6 months now. 40mg twice a day The cluster headaches that have plagued my life are now down to a bare minimum.....(not totally gone away) and manageable.
HOWEVER! I have gained about 1.5 stone in weight, particularly round my middle. This is highly unusual for me.
My GP states this is NOT a recognised side effect and I simply must be eating more due to feeling better! As my eating habits have not changed at all, I find this very hard to accept. If I am to take this drug for the rest of my days, At this rate I will be enormous!
PLEASE…can anyone help/confirm/reassure me that this is only a temporary side effect?
