I have been on nortriptyline for 8 months for migraine prevention and I can’t say that it has reduced my migraines but they have been less severe . I am now reducing the dosage I was on 30 mg a night so I have reduced to 20 then now 10 I seemed to be having palpitations which I didn’t have when on it but my weight has increased while on it also another reason for reducing and come off it .i have tryed a number of migraine preventions in the past but might consider the magnesium route but which one and dosage is another issue I currently take Zolmitriptan for my migraine attacks which is my life safer and works very well for me . I am also finding I am a little light headed and not sleeping well I think another side effect of withdrawal I think I might be going back to my head ache specialist to see if there is something else I can try but I have tried a few In the past whichhavent really helped I have also had MRI to make sure there is no nasties I am 59 so post meno and was told I should start to get less migraines but not seen it so far be nice to hear from anyone who is going though similar .
