  • Hi there.ive also had migraines since puberty which have got much worse and more frequent in the last year. I have tried the migraine support formula which didnt work for me but they work for most people apparently, i am now on amitriptyline which i think are working to some extent as my migraines are stil frequent but milder and ive only been on them a few weeks so far.its such a minefield as there are so many options to try but it takes so much time to try each one.good luck.
