Hi firebabe, Welcome to Healing Well. I am taking an anti-depressent as a preventative for migraine at the moment, in low doses some antidepressents can tone down the pain and they can also take stress levels down to an acceptable level.
I totally understand your reluctance to take this, I was reluctant at first too, it may be worth giving it a go and see what happens, it may surprise you, but at the end of the day it is up to you. Let us know how you get on.
Take care Ann.
