Hi all,
 
I have been suffering from migraines since i was 16, i am now 29, theyt seemed to have got more frequent over the years. I would average approx 2 each month, i know people have it alot worse, but it was still having a significant bearing on my quality of life.
 
i decided enough was enough and went to the doctor to finally get it sorted. i had been taking naramig for when i felt a migraine coming on, the visual disturbance being the first symptom, on taking the naramig promptly the effects of the migraine are significantly reduced, however, i wanted a proactive medication and not a reactive medication.
 
So after a few goes on different preventative tablets none worked, so the doctor decided to prescribe Epilim (sodium valproate)VIEW IMAGE500mg twice a day, which have not been licensed for migraine use. So i wasn't to hopeful of them working as nothin seemed to prevent the migrianes.
 
Now, 8 months on and im still taking my Epilim (sodium valproate)VIEW IMAGE500mg twice a day and i have not had one migraine. To me this is a miracle and long may it last, i can now go about my daily life without the thoughts of when the next one will strike.
 
I hope you find this helpful.

I have suffered with migraine for nearly 30 years now and have tried almost everything! Just started sodium valproate and I was just wondering how long was it until you saw a difference and what side effects did you have? It must be fantastic finding something that works.
Hope to here from you soon
Cheers.

I did have one migraine from the start but i was on just one 500mg tablet a day, so went back to the doctor and he upped it to two 500mg tablets a day, i take one in the morning and one at nite and since then i never ever had one, and no side effects at all, not like previous tablets i had taken which made me sleepy.

Hi
I am taking 300 in the morn and 300 at night so fingers crossed also going to see specialist soon. Some of the side effects are a bit scary but at this moment in time I don't care as my quality of life is awful. Thanks for replying.
