I've been on gabapentin for my migraines, but the side effects are horrific. My doc wants to try me on propranolol, but my blood pressure is too normal. I also have anxiety, so he thought the beta blocker would be a good fit.

My daughter has just been back to the Dr about this. She used to have this problem quite bad, years ago, and was on Propranolol for it. He gave her the choice of 2 scripts - one was propranolol which is taken daily, and the other is a medication which is taken just before the period is due, and through to the end of the period.
I am not a Dr - please check with your qualified Health Professional for a diagnosis and treatment plan

What do you do to reduce or eliminate hormonal migraines? I have switched to a plant-based diet, and exercise a few times a week, and it may have helped slightly the last few months, but my migraines are still there at the start of my period. Any suggestions?
