... My neuro-doc referred me to another who specializes in headaches and he wants me to start pristiq, but I am not suffering from depression. Is there a use for extreme headaches with pristiq?
I am not sure about any labeling for headaches. I will tell you this, when it comes to some of the specialist; they have done alot of off labeling studies and find that even though a drug was not made for that specific purpose it works. I will promise you this, it has worked for him on more than one occassion. If I had a headache for that long, I would almost be ready to eat shoe leather. Unless you have an allergy to the drug, or any drug interactions; You might want to give it a try. I hope it works out for you
it sounds like he is trying it on you because i took prestq for a long while and it never helped my migrains,but they did put me on another antidepressant that worked great on my migraines it called elavil its a trycyclic antidepressant and an older one..you should talk to your doc about this..ive taken every migrain med out there and then my neurologist took me off midrin and put me on elavil.and i was suprised how fast it worked within 2 weeks..so give something like this a try. good luck
