Inderal a heart drug was prescribed years ago, to prevent migraines, have no idea if more drugs is helpful, Doc needs to weigh up the benefits vs the side effects. Nothing more debilitating than a migraine, doesn't it link with nausea and photophobia, need dark room and rest

I have dealt with migraines for years. Now I get them less often and they are not as bad. I am on Benlysta and have not noticed any change in regard to my headaches. They are hit or miss for me. The infusions don't bring them on. Hope this helps. Good luck.
