Q: Namenda for Migraines

  I need to know if anyone has tried Numenda for migraines? I have been taking it for 2 months. At first, I thought it was helping, but then my everyday migraines started. Well, now the Neurologists says to take it another month..that it takes about 3 months to work. Anyone know much about this drug..or the outcome?

Hi, Denise,


I do take Namenda, but not for Migraine prevention. I take it for glaucoma.


Some people have found that it helps reduce the frequency of their Migraines, and for some of them, it did take a full three months for it to fully kick in.

Hi Denise,


Teri takes Namenda.  I'll ask her to pop over and share her experience with you.
