Been there ...got the T-shirt..LOL.. It helped a bit with my migraines, and some with the anxiety but not completely even after I was on it for about 5 months. Stayed on it per the dr for about 9 mo...to no avail..so I got off it myself..by the way don't do that!! The side effects of it for me were I gained about 45 pounds and had to change my anti depressent the 2 together were making my hair thin out:>( so...I quit. But I quit it myself like I said and the dr said I even though I quit in just like I got on it at the rate of one pill a week...I quit it toooo fast therefore I had withdrawls...throwing up was the worst and staring at the ceiling not sleeping even on valium .....not fun....so......yeah...got the T-shirt. But IT might work for you, I am now trying Topamax and I don't like it either... I have been around the board I think...I am tired.
