I took prozac for years. I also had migraines and daily headaches for years. Oddly, I asked to stop my prozac, and so stopped the migraines. I found it amazing.
I went from 4 a week to maybe 1 a month, a few headaches, but nothing some coffee, and tylonol with caffiene doesn't help.
I find it interesting since a lot of docs actually prescribe antidepressants for migraines. And i was being told my migraines were because i was depressed. Ironic.
I am on Cymbalta now and doing pretty good.
I just had to share.

Interesting. I take Pristiq for my migraines and it seems to help but I've always thought mine were hormonal since they seem to be worse around that time of the month.
