Hi all

I have had chronic hemiplegic migraine now for 5yrs - I am currently trying the above medication, and whilst it has reduced the severity of the attacks the side effects are being to get to me - and i am being to think this might be another failed drug.

The main one is the weight gain - and i was wondering if anyone else had any experience of this drug and knows if the weight settles down - or does it just keep going up and up? Or does anyone know if there is anything you can take to counter act this? My weight has never been a huge issue for me, as i just wanted the pain to go, but I have put on 3 stone in 2 yrs and am now the heaviest i have ever been, very uncomfortable and worried about the long term effects.
