    Pregnenalone for prevention of migraines?
    Swimgirl57 posted:
    I haven't posted in awhile. I have been on Pamelor to help prevent migraines but I think all it really has done for me is put the pounds on! It may help a little. But recently I tried taking Pregnenalone every morning, which is a natural hormone that helps with your levels of estrogen, tetostrophen (sp?) and progesterone. I had taken it in my 40's and I really noticed a difference back then that it helped prevent the migraines, but it soon wore off and i stopped taking it. I started up again and it is amazing how it helps me with energy, feeling of well being, and NOT waking up with a headache every morning! I understand you have to be careful on how many millegrams you take, so I am taking about 35 mgs. You can find it at any health food store. I recommend trying this supplement. Has anyone else tried pregnenalone?
