I have been suffering with headaches for the past 2 years. They are bad every day, some days they get that bad, all i can do is cry and cry.
I have been signed off from work with these headaches as they thought they were BP related.
My BP has settled more or less, except today when it was 183/142.
I am taking Lofepramine and Adipine and as the pain as got out of hand and OTC pills e.g. Syndol, Nurofen Tension headaches is doing nothing but touching the edge.
I have tried Amitrypyline, volterol, codydramol and many OTC remedies.
Neurologist said he thought they were tension related and the fact that i glench my teeth. I have a splint but can only wear it at night as i gag when it is in.
So, Dr gave me some things to think about, changing home life, job, etc. She says as i have had mental health issues i must stay on lofepramine now for a minimum of 18 months.
She has given me Paramax on the understanding that I am not to overuse them and I must be in control. I can take no more than 4 in 24 hours. If the pain gets to a high level and I cant cope at work, I can take 2 but then need to drink plenty of water, no alcohol and also must have eaten that day.
I am nervous about taking them, she made me scared that If i over take them, it will do me internal harm as I have had liver issues in the past and also unstable zones in my mind and levels that fluctuate to extremes, suicidal (on a cliff edge) , to OTT happy.
It is my first posting, so please be gentle with me.
Has anyone got any thoughts about this drug etc.
