Can Some Antidepressants Cause Migraines

I was taking Aropax and then switched to Prozac, I had never had a migraine headache before taking antidepressants and suddenly out of the blue they started, I have been off antidepressants for about 2 and a half years and haven't had a migraine for 2 years, can antidepressants cause migraines?

Answer

Hi v84deb,

It's not that the antidepressants cause Migraines, rather some people may experience increased Migraines or a side effect of non-Migraine headaches. Migraine is a genetic neurological disease caused by overactive neurons in our brains and genetics, and triggered by things like dehydration, too much or too little sleep, skipping meals and changes in the barometric pressure to name a few.

Good luck
