First of all my name is Tami and I am new to this forum.  I have been having headaches for at least the last 14 years.  I have been to several doctors in the past who did MRI's and other tests BUT never actually diagnosed me with anything and never even tried to put me on something.  Well, this past weekend was unbearable as far as my headaches went.  I went in on Monday and saw my current doctor (which I love) and she put me on Toprol XL for the prevention of migraines.  Granted, I ONLY started taking the meds Monday night BUT yesterday here at work I developed another headache which actually made me cry.  I called my doctor and she called me in Midrin for it.  I took one when I got home and in less than 15 minutes the headache that I had for about 8 hours was completely gone !!!
I just wanted to know if anyone else out there has had any luck with Toprol in the prevention of migraines. 
Thanks for any help.  BTW, I am making an appointment with a neurologist today.

Good Tami,

make an appointment to see the neurologist! I have tried many things as migraine preventatives- I have not yet tried Toprol. I just want to say hang in there and hopefull it will kick in. I know preventatives usually take time (weeks) to work to their full potential!

Stop by my website, sign the guestbook and email me if you need to!
