I was diagnosed with migraines about 4 years ago, and was put on topamax 300mg as a preventative (had to get off of it due to the severe anxiety i experienced) and then i have been on this list so far as abortives and none of them seem to work:

my symptoms are as of recently: pain/pressure behind my left eye and my upper left forehead, nausea, vision disturbances (ie: mild hallucinations as if things are wavering in and out), severe insomnia, ear pain, nasal congestion(may be un related and due to allergies). The pain is intense and I usually didn't take an abortive, but the pain is making me tear up. Any suggestions? Does nuerontin work well as a preventative without anxiety side effects?
Only medications I'm on is night-time cold/allergy antihistimine, and Inderol.
