I am looking for info on using atenolol for the prevention of migraines.  I had a consult with a "staff" neurologist to see if he had any ideas on where to go with my migraine situation and he suggested to start atenolol as a preventative in addition to BOTOX.  I am getting the BOTOX on July 20th and am supposed to start the atenolol as soon as it's filled at the pharmacy.  I have read the standard info on it and it doesn't look like a very good drug for MIGRAINE prevention.  I am hoping someone out there has had some experience and will let me know.  Thanks and have a great week!

Thanks for the response! I was on propanolol too a couple years back and DID NOT do well on it either!!! I really have no idea why they want me to try this -- I think they are grasping at straws at this point!!
