    One of many reasons why I will never take those again - I take the very occasional triptan now (had one today actually) butI've never found an issue with the odd pint.

    I did find that the preventative tablets made me a bit depressed (Pizotifen), glad I only tried one course.

    Since cutting out caffeine I've been 99% migraine free.

    Yeah, Pizotifen is what i'm on. I wouldn't say it's made me noticeably depressed, as i'm generally a pessimist anyway. Things have been bothering me a bit lately, but i wouldn't say it's the tablets. Who knows.

    I was starting to get light headed & my vision was a bit hazy off 1/2-to-a-full bottle of Magners the other week though. Wondered what was going on at first, then i realised i'm not supposed to drink. lol. Cider gets me wasted quick, but not THAT quick.

    May have to look at trying de-caff. I don't drink a lot of coffee, but it's an interesting thought.


    Thing is though, my migraines are strange. They hit every 6-7-8 days. They did that for 8 weeks out of 9 until i went on these pills. Bit odd when they're as predictable as that.

    It really is worth knocking out caffeine completely, even decaf has caffeine in, with some decaf's having less/more than others. The caffeine withdrawl is the major migraine trigger, cocoa solids also contain a chemically similar compound to caffeine, so for some this can also trigger the same migraine symptoms. Caffeine is also in lots of drinks, not just Cola, so worth looking in to, same goes for many off the shelf painkillers too.

    Check out http://www.caffeineandmigraine.com/

    I think the combination of lots of triptans initially (I was getting 4-5 migraines a week) then going on to the pizotifen stuffed me up, my personality changed quite a bit even though I hid much of it from others.
