I am looking for info on using atenolol for the prevention of migraines. I had a consult with a "staff" neurologist to see if he had any ideas on where to go with my migraine situation and he suggested to start atenolol as a preventative in addition to BOTOX. I am getting the BOTOX on July 20th and am supposed to start the atenolol as soon as it's filled at the pharmacy. I have read the standard info on it and it doesn't look like a very good drug for MIGRAINE prevention. I am hoping someone out there has had some experience and will let me know. Thanks and have a great week!
