Was looking for some advice and maybe just some positive thoughts . I am due to fly in 3 weeks I am PETRIFIED Of how ill feel. I am doing a 12 hour flight to see my boyfriend in la.
I’m week 6/7 on pitzotifen it got rid of my aura and light sensitivity for 2 weeks then it all back the week before my period which makes me believe my mav is very hormone driven. Which makes sense as it started at puberty.
My issue is since coming off the dosulepin and trying pitz all my rocking has come back x 10! for me this is the worst symtoms as it brings with it lots of visual vertigo.
I went out for dinner last night and the lights and noise instantly made me sway and the room tilt. I had Valium which I took and it really took everything down . I rarely take Valium but I was greatful it made me able to actually stay out . I do wonder how Valium works for migraine in this way. ?
I asked my gp to give me amitriptyline as last time I took this in the first 6 days it stopped the rocking completely on 10mg. I’m on day 3 and no luck so far anyone taken ami @turnitaround I know you had great success with it . Just wondering how long it may take to alleviate that symtoms dosulepin also took it away within weeks. I am praying for some relief as I am not sure I can manage flying with this severe rocking
Thanks for listening p.s @Jojo65 just wanted to say reading ur post this morning gave me so much hope and after my trip I will be asking dr s about Effexor wish I could start now but too risky with a flight coming up.
