I get 8 headaches every day of every week of every month of every year. I suffer from cluster headaches of which I get 8 a day and I suffer from migraines of which I get 4 a month. If you are taking that much midrid than I suspect that you are getting hit almost daily with ha also. There are other preventative medicines out there besides propranolol. I would not give up looking. If your dr. isn't recomending you keep finding and searching for a better preventative you need to find a new neuro. There is relief out there somewhere you just need to find it.
