Met with a Neurologist for the first time on Tuesday. She had no idea about the brain shivers thing and never heard of it but she wants to get my migraines under control. She switched me from Propranolol to Nadolol. I took it for the first time just now and I'm waiting on a PA for the auto injection. Ajovy, I think it's called. Has anyone here used Nadolol for migraines?
