Making a Change

I've always had problems with migraines & over the past few years they've gotten worse. With the anti-depressant I'm on I can't take anything other than over the counter migraine medicine. If I don't take that at the first sign of one it doesn't work. So while I was at the dr. this past Saturday(sick with upper respitory stuff) I talked to him about any new meds being out that I could take for my migraine. This led to us talking about why I was on an anti-depressant. He mentioned to me that I should try to get off of it, especially with me having migraines so I can take migraine medicine. I've wanted to for a while but honestly I've always been a little nervous. This time I'm not so much, I really feel like I'll be ok without it. I was put on the medication because of post-partum, well it's been almost 5 yrs. ago so I should be ok.

Hope you don't mind but I followed you from Brooke's blog...I'm curious what anti depressant your on...I'm on them too and on migraine meds..a daily and something for when they come on without I'm curious what anti your on..I've never had my doc mention anything about not being able to be on both at the same time..

Don't worry about it! I was just curious since none of my docs have ever said anything. Good luck if you try to go off of the anti's...I have already decided that I'll probably be on them forever lol, I like myself much better medicated! :)

Ain't nothing wrong with being medicated right!?!?! It's the only thing that makes me halfway normal :)
