Test Results...Nortriptalyne?????

hey everyone...hope everyone is doing well... and results: the rotary chair showed normal, the platform showed some problems with leg/feet/eyes (duh), and finally the ENG just showed left ear 35% lower function (i guess than the right ear?). anyway, he is sticking with the thought of MAV and prescribed me Nortriptalyne?....

please anyone who has taken this leave me some feedback on side effects, effectiveness, etc..... pretty please i had them call in the prescription, he wanted me to try this first as opposed to the Neurontin that I have saved. He said possible side effects were jittery feeling or more appetite. Has this drug worked for any of you MAV'ers???

Hi alex, at last you know what you are dealing with !

I have not tried that drug , but as i have anxiety I dont like the idea of feeling jittery more.

But please let us know how you get on with it.
Do you actually get proper headach migraines or silent migraines ?

Re: Test Results....Finally....

Alexi - I tried that once. It was right in the middle of all of this junk so I took one pill at night and the next day I felt horrid. HOWEVER, I felt horrid to begin with so I can't tell really if that is what made me feel so bad. It does have side effects (or course), and they recommend you take it at night. So just beware and don't panic. It may actually make you more dizzy and lightheaded, naseaus, etc. But with this type of medication, they say you need to take a little at a time and keep going and going for it to start to work slowly. THe preventive migraine meds work that way. It is NOT instant relief. In fact, you will most likely feel worse before you feel better.

Re: Test Results....Finally....

yea its sometimes hard to tell with any meds wether or not there will be a beneficial effect unless you continue to take it. I remember myself I had taken a meclizine to see if it would help.. Boy did it throw me into a state of loopiness where I never wanted to be again.
