: What antidepressants do you recommend for the treatment of migraine headaches accompanied by depression? I have tried
: Elavil, Prozac, Zoloft and Effexor at average dosages without relief. Elavil made my depression worse. Effexor increased the
: severity of my migraines. Prozac and Zoloft had very little effect. I have migraines that start premenstrually and last for about 8
: days. I have tried various medications with relief of headache, followed by reoccurence the following day. I have used Imetrex,
: amerge, Zomig and currently Maxalt. What is the risk of taking these medications with the SSRI antidepressants. My
: pharmacist refused to fill my prescription for Zoloft and Imetrex due to the possibility of serotonin syndrome.
Please try the Reishi Ganoderma herb which is very effective for such symptoms .
