Thanks for your response. I have not actually started the seroquel yet, I get nervous taking meds like that. But this is even more incentive to start taking it asap. I'm concerned about the sleepiness that comes with this medicine.
I have heard of Topomax but have not been treated with it. I have actually just been diagnosed with migraines on Friday, so I haven't taken anything for them yet except advil.
I was prescribed Elavil but it looks like I won't be able to take it due to bipolar II. It also causes weigh gain. Which is unacceptable.
I think it is interesting that Seroquel helps w/ migraines, since the Rx bottle it says may cause headaches. What are your thoughts on this? Does it do just the opposite to people who already have headaches?
I really appreciate your input.
