I have got my report through from the NMC and my medication choices to try are atenolol in the first instance , atenolol a beta blocker, flunarizine, or candersartin. My specialist has also recommended Botox. For a needle phobic that is a tough one, but I think staying with the complex migraine including vertigo is worse!
So I was wondering if you guys could help with some questions :
I know that flunarizine is a v expensive option as I'd need to get it imported but has anyone had good effects from it? The main worries I have are possible weight gain and or tiredness. Has anyone had those? I'm preparing to come off pitzotifen due to the extreme tiredness and 3 stone weight gain so I don't want to gain anymore.
Has anyone had experience of atenolol?
And same for candersartin?
Thanks for any comments X
