adderall for migraines?

Post  lentils on Mon Sep 08, 2014 6:09 pm

Has anyone used adderall? I know some people who say adderall reduces the number of migraines. It gives me headaches, but not migraines. I have read on other forums the headaches disappear after a few days.

Adderall, Ritalin, other Stimulants

Stimulants like adderall and ritalin are used for chronic headaches. I believe they can reduce pain, increase energy, and help a person concentrate better. However, when I took them I felt nervous like I had too much coffee. They didn´t help me.

Maybe I'll give it a try. I do have chronic low level migraines, that I have been treating with cafergot. I think it is time to wean off the cafergot, the dose I'm using is not working too well and I don't want to increase it.

I was given some amphetamine, not Adderall but whatever the newest one was.  It gave me terrible daily headaches which were just as bad as migraines.

I was switched to Adderall, this was given to help me with my chronic fatigue.  Unfortunately, it has food coloring in it so I really doubt it will help migraines.  It certainly did not help mine, and after I stopped taking Propranolol I no longer needed the Adderall; it just made me very shakey.

They did reduce pain, but not the headache type. It was more along the lines of, if I burned myself on the oven I didn't feel anything.
