Over the past 2 months I've started having the worst migrane / headaches. The doctor first prescribed Sudatriptan but these did not help & just made me feel drowsy. I'm now on Amatriptyline 10mg and have been on these for a week and a half & haven't seen much improvement. Even though its such a low dosage I take them the same time of a night and they knock me out cold, and wake up the next morning feeling awful.
I've noticed - as soon as I wake up in the morning I can feel a sudden pain behind my eyes and whichever side of my head. Whichever side (usually my left) the side of my face also hurts & my teeth & gums. If I don't get out of bed quick enough it turns into a migrane. Side effects are nausea and confusion.
I went to get blood tests done & they came back clear. I don't know where else to go as it's affecting my work life & social life. I'm only 21 years old.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated x
