Re: migrane pill that causes weight loss

I haven't heard of this! I would imagine it's a pill that you would take daily to prevent migraines. All the migraine meds I've used are only used for short term problems - e.g. 1-2 days.

I had a 7-8 day migraine (the longest of my life) and I might have lost weight from that. I was always nauseous and didn't eat very much. Though I barely moved, so it was probably didn't burn many calories anyway.

You might be thinking of Topamax?

Re: migrane pill that causes weight loss

Yep, Topamax, but I took it a few months and still got as many migraines as b4..so didn't work for me.. figured I should just hit the gym harder lol also. BUT.... I couldn't take any kind of narcotic pain reliever while on Topmax. The interaction made me very nauseous and always ended up throwing up for a day or two. so it wasn't worth to me. Now I have been on verapamil for about 2 months. I have had about 2 migraines since I got on it which is a REMARKABLE improvement and I think I only got those bc I had to use an estrogen patch and those days I used it was when i got the migraine. So I am throwing that out as well lol and just stick with the Verapamil and pain pills as needed.
