Meds and Weight: Update

Last time I posted I was just starting out trying a new migraine preventative regimen, and my weight had climbed a bit. Well, good news is that it leveled out after about 3-4 pounds. And, weirdly, became extremely stable at that point. Normally I’m used to a 4-5 pound swing range, but since I started this new drug it’s been 1-2 pounds at the most. So that is great news!

It’s still too early to say, however, on whether the drug is working or not. What I can say is that the first week I was taking it, I had the normal amount of migraines. Since then, however…well, today is day 8 without a full-blown migraine. Eight days. More than a week. This is very promising! Especially since my weekend included several things that can usually be counted on to produce one, such as air travel and disruption to my eating schedule.

Of course I probably jinxed the whole thing just now by saying anything… I’m not going to declare it a success until I’ve been on it at least a month, maybe three, but right now I’m hopeful. *fingers crossed*
