I just started taking this at 12.5 mg and will go to 25 mg after four days. I have ocular migraines but no real headache just a visual migraine so we’re hoping this will help that. On the other side I was wondering if it might help anything with anxiety? I do not have bipolar or seizure stuff I just have migraine and I just wondered if it might help with anxiety because I do have a long history of anxiety. I was taking Paxil and getting relief but the side effects were just too much so I weaned off of that I’m currently taking diazepam as needed but I thought it would be nice if this medication help with some anxiety relief to.
