I have just been diagnosed with vestibular migraines and my neurologist says that Endep will help. I am scared to take it as the side effects are scary! I get a wonky (off balance) feeling a lot of the time and many headaches that stem from the base of my skull and make my neck tight and sore. I get cloudy vision and pressure in my head along with tinnitus. I am 45 years old and was in great shape and health until about 1 year ago when these symptoms got really constant and now I have lost my motivation for exercise etc. I would love any advice you can give me. Thank you :)
There is a new treatment it is still in clinical trials..CGRP. look it up and see if there are any trials near you. This has little to no side effects. It blocks the protein in the brain that allows you to feel the migraine. So far it is extremely successful in humans and isn't so darn damaging like many of these drugs are. Just a suggestion. I followed European studies years ago for my migraines.. follow your heart and consult with a neurologist. Good luck
Have you tried the endep and if so did it help?
I have had migraines vertigo for about 18 months, finally diagnosed by a neurologist and given Endep. I have constant visual distortion and vertigo, I have gone up to 30mg recently but noticed an improvement in my symptoms after about 6 weeks on 20mg. It hasn't yet resolved the problem though but I've heard that can take a long time, but I'm better than I was, although I still have flare ups.
