migraine preventives: Zanaflex (tizanidine)
Has anyone had success with Zanaflex as a migraine or chronic headache preventive? If so, what dosage worked best, and with or without food? Also, how long did it work for you? I am specifically interested in preventing migraine/headache pain that comes on mostly while asleep (3-5 days a week). Sumatriptan (Imitrex) is an effective abortive, but tends to cause rebound headaches.
The following preventives work fairly well (50-70 percent reduction) for 6-8 weeks, then stop, and I must change to a different type for a while: Topamax, Nadolol, Propranolol, Zonisamide. miamitennismom
