I’ve suffered with chronic migraines for 3 years now. They’ve gotten to be 3-5 times a week. I had been taking maxalt and diclofenac as needed but my dr just put me on Effexor xr as a daily preventative. Has anyone else been prescribed this for migraines? I think the worst side effects so far is trouble sleeping. But I also have a little nausea and whooshing in my ears. Another troubling issue is that she re-prescribed maxalt and diclofenac for breakthrough migraines and when I checked those show major interactions with Effexor. Also today I seem to have slept wrong and my lower back is spasming. I normally take ibuprofen but It says not to mix.
