I first tried hydroxy about a year ago, one tablet a day, and was ok for the first few days, then got a severe migraine so stopped the tablets the migraine finally went after 3 days. have now been back on hydroxy for 3 months trying to find a way of tolerating it. been taking one tablet just before bed for 2 days in a row then stopping one day then two days again. now starting to get dizzy spells in the night with lingering headaches the next day. last night was really bad had about 4 or 5 dizzy spells, felt like I was going to fall off the planet. last night was not one of the nights I took a tablet so not sure if it was down to the hydroxy or not but only getting these dizzy spells at night. I've been reading that some brands have more side effects than others [ mine says Bristol on the box.] any suggestions? got a dr's appointment in 2 weeks, soonest I could get.
