So this past month has been pretty rough on the head. I have 2 to 3 headaches a day, and very painful long lasting ones at that and not getting much sleep. Anyways, I went to a new neurologist and it was an interesting experience.
I recently moved to South Korea (4 months ago) and I finally decided enough was enough and wanted to attempt to see a neurologist here. After some internet time I found a well known hospital. Had a friend that speaks english and korean help me with the appointment. They had a nice international center that I checked in with, which gave me a personal translator/guide to take me to the doctor and translate between us. The neurologist seemed very knowledgeable (from what was translated at least). After about a 20 min conversation I was prescribed 2 weeks worth of 4 medications: Propranolol, Amitriptyline, Flunarizine, and Acetaminophen. In 2 weeks I have an appointment to come back and let them know if I have had any lessened headaches and/or side effects.
After some googling they all pretty much seemed on the up and up and well known for treating Migraines. Only Flunarizine didn't have to much information. From what I could see it has been around for 25+ years and used for migraine treatment, but beyond that, not to much information. Anyone heard of Flunarizine or have experience with it?
