I had lots of problems with night terrors when I was little (upto age 5 or so) but they seemed to clear up from then until I was in my mid-teens. Once and a while I would have a bought of terrors so violent that I would be terrifiied to close my eyes and would only fall asleep from complete physical and mental exhaustion days later. Thankfully they seemed to disappear just as quickly as they had come back after a few years. Then last October, when I was started on Nortriptyline, for migraines, they came back with a vengance. It hasn't mattered what dose I am on, they're there, though the higher the dose, the worse they are. But my migraine symptoms, especially the really scary, non-pain ones, were much improved.
Today my doctor and I agreed that it was time to try another prophylactic migraine med so tonight I start Topiramate. Fingers crossed I can actually start to enjoy going to sleep again one of these days.
Praying the you since no one has posted on this topic in over six months that it is because you have both found some level of relief.
