Beta- and Calcium Channel Blockers and Migraines

Posted By Michelle on September 09, 1998 at 01:24:37:







Hi,
My neurologist suggested that I take Beta or Calcium Channel Blockers to prevent
migraines due to a family history with strokes (three of my mother's brothers died form strokes in the 30s)
and my migrianes becoming more and more like strokes each time I have one.
However, I only see mention of these meds
in use for heart attack patients. Is this something common for migraine patients?
What are the long and short term side effects? Any info that you can provide would be helpful!
Thanks!
