  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for migraine headaches)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 40 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: My migraines started in 2008 out of nowhere and every medication I've tried we've maxed out and switched to the next, max out, move on....I think I'm on my 9th or 10th migraine medication. I used to go to emerg for tapentadol and stemtol by IV, but that started giving me the shakes and I'd feel sick for days after and still get migraines, and now the propranolol is not working anymore and I'm almost at the max dose.
Cost: < $25 monthly

Advice & Tips: I used it for tremor. This was before the PD dx. Or it seemed to keep me from getting jumpy/overexicited/shakey when i was around a group of people. The new psych doc recommended discontinuing it. The neuro doc said it can't stop PD tremor. So, i didn't push to have the rx renewed.
