Hi all-at age 47 I was just diagnosed with Vestibular Migraines yesterday after 4 months of being dizzy nearly constantly.  Otoneuro prescribed 240 mg of verapamil er at bedtime and I took my first pill last night.  I woke up this morning with one of the worst ever headaches(though the dizziness seems to have decreased).  Has anyone experienced a headache like this on this medication?  Could this be a migraine headache?  Pain is above my left eye/at times feels in my eye and my son told me I look grouchy from squinting to release pressure/ease pain.  Should I call my doc or wait til I  am on the med a few more days?  Thanks!

Call your doctor. You can be suffering from a side effect. I am not familar with the medication. But its always safer to go through your doctor
