I have been prescribed and am taking pizotifen 1.5mg daily as a migraine inhibitor, but on a couple of occasions, having forgotten to take a dose, have experienced frightening withdrawal symptoms including a distinctive weight sensation on the top of my head coupled with wooziness and the feeling of something being seriously not right in my well being. I am not a sufferer of anxiety. Having experienced this direct cause and effect more than once now, and even if the time of my normal dose is late by as little as three hours, the same head weight comes along and a fealing of being quite drowsy and unwell, and slightly nauseous. It made me feel suspicious about how potent the drug Pizotifen really is and am now concerned as to how I might fair, if I try to come off it even if gradually.
