Headache patients often quit the preventives due to annoying side effects, and so it is crucial to keep the dosage to a minimum. We try to start low and build up the dose. With topiramate, I will slowly increase to 50 mg and then, if needed, up to 100 mg; many patients do well on 25 or 50 mg. The generic topiramate ER is longer acting. While, the average dose of 500–1000 mg of sodium valproate (Depakote®) may lead to weight gain, topiramate may enhance weight loss.

With amitriptyline and nortriptyline, we do encounter weight gain, dry mouth, and constipation, but we use small-to-medium doses for most patients. I will start a patient on 5 mg (half of a 10 mg tablet of amitriptyline). The cost of medicine has increased but the generic tricyclics are very inexpensive.
