Hello Jessica,

Do you have history of Diabetes, blood pressure?
Any significant past illness?
Did you take Klonopin yesterday?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

no history of diabetes or high blood pressure, i do take lexapro 20 mg daily for anxiety and i did not take klonopin yesterday. My birth father suffered from petit mal seizures and my brother has epilepsy. I havent been diagnosed with any, I do have a steel rod in my back from a spinal fusion which i had done 14 years ago.

Thanks Jessica for the detailed reply.

Klonopin can be taken with the Tylenol and NSAID. But NSAIDs increase the blood levels of the Lexapro, so you may be cautious taking them together. The symptoms you experienced can be due to many reasons as following;

1) medications side effects.
2) a prolonged migraine too can cause it.
3) sinusitis
4) inadequate sleep.

If the symptoms repeat or any new symptoms like nausea, dizziness appear, you should consult your doctor. You may consider prescription medications for the migraine from your doctor, if the attacks are recurrent or persistent.There are two types of medications used for the treatment of migraine;


1) To abort the attack


Dopamine antagonists




2) To prevent the headache


Valproic acid, gabapentin

Calcium channel blockers

Beta-blockers, tricyclic antidepressants


There are dietary triggers known which should be avoided. Common triggers are

a) chocolate,

b) aged cheeses and meats,

c) wine and beer

d) citrus fruits.
