Got some new medicine for my headaches.
I got put on a preventative called propranolol. In my 31 years here on this planet, I have never had a drug affect me to badly. It makes me hostile, it makes me exremely tired, it makes me nauseated, it makes me dizzy, it greatly affects my motor skills, it makes me feel like I'm coming out of my body, and it lasts for a full 24 hours. It's horrible.

For pain, they gave me butal mixed with tylenol and caffine. This stuff works okay, but it makes me extremely sleepy. There is no way I can legitimately function on either one.

Looks like we're back to tramadol, as it's the only thing that controls the pain and allows me to function normally.

The search continues...

RE: Got some new medicine for my headaches.
Do you usually have good BP? Years ago I was put on a BP drug to prevent migraines...it lowered my BP (that is already low) to the point that I couldn't function, it was awful. I had many of the same symptoms you describe.

Buta works, after a while it doesn't make you so drowsy.

Tramadol actually gives me a headache...not very helpful.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy

That's really odd. Propranolol is just a garden variety beta-blocker. Most people take it for their BP. A few people get tired, and depressed people sometimes get worse.

Woohoo!

Not only am I part Native American (Choctaw), I'm also part Grey. I need to put this on applications when I'm filling them out. Might be better for getting considered.
