Re: Strattera & migraine, more feedback please!

Everyone is different. All you can do is give it a trial.

I've been on several meds for hypertension that supposedly also help with
migraines. None of them helped me with either issue, and I had a severe
allergic reaction to one of them.

Pressure headache is another way of saying tension headache, right? I've done
a LOT of reading on migraines and even tension headaches can be migraines.
For years I was treated for sinus headaches, and none of those meds helped.
Turns out most sinus headaches are actually migraines, unless you have an
infection in your sinuses.

I don't just get the 'classic migraine' with the stabbing pain above one eye and
the visual disturbances. I get them all at different times. Tight band around my
head ... yep. Sinus pain behind my eyes ... yep. Terrible tension in my neck ...
yep. Pain and tingling on the top of my head ... yep. Gut migraines ... yep.
And occasionally that stab in the corner of the eye ... yep.

The only thing my vision does is get blurry. Sometimes I will smell and taste
something I haven't eaten in months. Sometimes my balance is bad. Usually
I don't have nausea, but occasionally I will wake up about an hour after going
to bed and get very sick, very quickly.

It's hell to live this way, so I hope you'll give Strattera a trial, maybe it will
work for you. I hope so.
