My situation is pretty much like yours. Vertigo, migraines, some occular migraines.
I take propanlol and elavil for migraine surpression. It works mostly unless I trigger an episode.
I took about
18 days of prednisone in October and had migraine headaches over night for 11 days.
My PCP had me do a trial of taking a cold med with 5 mg phenylephrine HCl...any brand.
And get this, it worked. Or the episode was over?
On the vertigo, I have BPV with the eye movements. My ENT did that fancy maneuver where they lie you down and twist your neck this way and that...I was sick to my stomach when they did it. I had a really BAD episode when the tipped me back. But it has not returned in 3 months...so instead of daily dizzy spells when I lay down, and some inbetween general dissyness, I am CURED. Well, for now.
Hoping you are feeling better soon,
