My doctor prescribed Nadolol (1-40 mg tablet once per day) to prevent my migraine headaches, I started taking it on a Thursday and got a migraine on the following Monday. Does the medication need to build up in my system or should it have started working right away? If it needs to build up, How long till it starts working? Thanks for you're help!

I have been taking Nadolol 40mg once a day to prevent Migraines. It took a few weeks before I noticed that I was getting fewer Migraines. Some were severe and some where not. It works differently for everyone. Give it about 3 weeks and if there is no difference, then talk to your Doctor. I really hope it helps you.
