May 11, 2010 (Started Apr 18, 2006)

  • Effectiveness
    Major (for Migraine headaches)
  • side effects
    Mild (Fatigue)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I take this medicine for migraine prevention, not for blood pressure. I tend to have low blood pressure as it is, so this medicine unfortunately lowers it a little more. The good thing is that it definitely keeps me from getting a full blown migraine. If I get a headache now (which is rare), I only get a normal headache and it goes away fairly quick. Before I took Norvasc, I was getting Migraines at least 2 times a week.
Side effects: Fatigue
