21 y/o F. Constant chronic daily migraine since April 2013 from mono and lots of prescription pills. Finally diagnosed with dysautonomia last week. Was hospitalized yesterday which was horrible (they put me on midodrine which exacerbated my already terrible headache). The goal is to stabilize my BP and my heart rate while decreasing headaches. They're going to start me on .1 Florinef and 12.5 mg Toprol (beta blocker) tomorrow. Any experience with these meds? When to fel results? I tried beta blockers in the past and they helped my headaches but lowered my BP too much, that's why they tried the midodrine with it but since I couldn't tolerate it they told me to try Florinef and increased sodium instead. I'm nervous and cannot have an increase in this already debilitating headache. I can't function and I've been out of school for over a year. Please help.
