I had been getting headaches about 12-15 per month. I am taking 30mg each night. It seemed to kick in after 6 weeks and I did not have a headache for 16 days- a miracle for me. Unfortunately it did not last and shortly after I was back to headaches 3-4 each week. I called my Doctor yesterday and he is weaning me off these and I am going to try a similar drug called Amitriptyline. I hope that it wi ... Show Full Comment

started this med 3 wks. ago for neuropathic pain and headaches. Titrated dosage up to 3 pills daily. pain is gone, however, attitude and mood swings are a problem, along with dry mouth and blurred vision. I will continue for a while longer to see if these side affects lessen with time. The relief from the pain is great.

I was put on this medication for abdominal discomfort that would not be relieved by any other medication. Simply stated...a nervous stomach. Also, irritable bowel. It has been a life saver for me. I have no further problems...for the most part. I was having so many problems with gas, bloating and stomach discomfort. All of these symptoms are gone.

Comment:
The second day I was on it I broke down emotionally further than I ever have before. So I made the mistake and stopped taking it for 2 days. I was originally put on it for headaches that weren't related to migrains or cluster headaches. But I've been researching this medication more and have noticed that my headaches could possibly be related to depression (not sure). I've noticed that ... Show Full Comment
