My doctor just put me on Nortriptyline. I take it at bedtime, and it both helps me sleep and should help prevent my migraines. My mother's been on it for a couple years (she's a year post-op) and her headaches and migraines have significantly improved. You can take Ultram, too.

The only downside to Nortriptyline is you either have to get the liquid version (like my mom) or open the capsule and pour the powder into a little dip in pudding, cover it up, and swallow it whole(like me) because the capsules don't seem to dissolve.

Here's a wesbite that has a list of what you can't take.

MEDICATIONS After Bariatric Surgery

Keep in mind that not everything may be on there.

I use Topamax to prevent migraines and Vicodin if I get a bad one.

Just to add my two cents-I have suffered from bad migraines since I was 28-I am 46 now and since my RNY on Oct. 19, 2009, I have not even gotten a head ache!

I was on this for a while.

Did not work for me at all.

Me and my doctor are still working on something that does work for me.

As of now, though, I'm just taking fioricet when I feel a migraine coming.
