Hello! I’m about to trial candersartan. Has anyone had success with this for vestibular migraine? I have tried amitriptyline, nortriptyline, topirimate and propranolol without success so I’m hoping this might work!
Candersartan vestibular migraine - National Migraine...
Hello Olespain. I don't have vestibular migraines but Candesartan is the only medication that didn't have the bad side effects linked to the other drugs you've mentioned. The good thing as well is that you don't waste months trying to reach the maximum dosage in the hope it will work and then end up giving up because the side effects are too bad. My doctor had said that it is best to take it evenings for migraines and not during the day. It definitely seemed to space out my migraines. However, there are 2 side effects that were a bit annoying to start with but seemed to get better after a few weeks, just need to be careful: light-head (be careful when you stand up) and flu like symptoms. By the way, I take it a few hours before bed after eating, so it doesn't destroy my stomach too much.
