Transplants can make things a little more tricky, can't they! My daughter noticed that with her corneas. Good luck, and I hope that things pan out o.k. for you!

We'll see what my doctor says next week. I do have a kidney transplant, so everything seems a little more delicate. Also a new doctor...

I imagine I'd have a lower dose, if any. Thank goodness, because it has a weird list of side effects!

My daughter's BP is perfectly normal, too - she has the lower dose propranolol.

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.

Good Luck,

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?
