Hi gardngal,

I haven't heard of pamelor, but I'm taking a migraine preventitive called Topamax.

It's actually a drug used to prevent seizures. It has recently been approved to treat ( prevent ) migraines, and as an anti-depressent, and I'm having wonderful results with it.

I was having daily headaches, cluster headaches, and basilar migraines (where the world would just spin) ... it was awful.

I take the Topamax daily, and haven't had a serious headache in months. Also, as the dosage increased incrementally, there was a pleasant side effect of the drug...weight loss. (LOL).

I know how debilitating the headaches can be. but this sis working for me for now.

Good luck finding relief.
