Customer Question

Hi i am looking for some advice about migraines
JA: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

Hello My name is***** will try my best to help you.

I am sorry that you are going through this.

Expert:  Khizra Naz replied 12 days ago.

Do you feel that these episodes have started after you decreased the dose?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
thank you, ***** ***** so but i think mainly due to being on thailand now as i was able to coast on the decreased dose in england fine
Customer: replied 12 days ago.
i think the change in climate has played a big factor and now subsequently i have many other triggers
Customer: replied 12 days ago.
unfortunately i only have a finite amount of propranolol with me for my long trip so i am unsure whether to up the dosage or seek out other preventative measures
Customer: replied 12 days ago.
Hope you can help Dr. Naz
Expert:  Khizra Naz replied 12 days ago.

Up the dosage, as you were already on higher dose. You would be able to get more from urgent care in thailand. As you have more triggers, it;s better to increase the dose to previous.

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
ok will do, what exactly is urgent care?
Expert:  Khizra Naz replied 12 days ago.

It;s an emergency treatment centre.

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
also the lady at the pharmacy was very shocked that i was taking propranalol for migraines and really wanted me to stop but she couldnt explain why due to the language barrier, should i be worried about taking them?
Expert:  Khizra Naz replied 12 days ago.

No, Propanolol is indicated for prophylaxis of migraines. She didn't know.

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
ok thank you for the help doctor
