i have been prescribed nortriptyline for migraines after suffering a mild stroke caused by the birth control pill. It has been a week now and i've had no relief. I stared on 25mg and have worked my way up to 75mg. I've had migraines on and off since starting the pill but none lasting more than a few days. Clearly I am no longer on it. However, I started a migraine the day before my stroke (yes i'm doing great) but it's been nearly three weeks that i've had a migraine. Somedays it's better than others. I will start back to work soon but can't imagine doing so in such pain. Any thoughts?
