hey there, I'll tell ya, my PCP doc is a great woman and very knowledgeable. She now speaks at conferences about AD's that counteract migraines and Effexor is at the top of the list, she just recently told me. I have taken Depakote girl........ and for me, I gained weight and lost a lot of hair- I didn't go bald or anything like that bad-but it was quite disturbing. I don't know how Neurontin fairs with your type of migraines though. God, I know I am only 1 piddle in the pot, an online dot at that, but from my experience, I would go with the Effexor-but only if, and only if, you do not want to gain weight, or lose hair. But ya know you may not get those side effects-but they are common (read up), so I should shut my trap-just my experience and that's what this forum is all about lol. I wish you the best books-I really do, migraines are not fun. Let us know how it goes.
