UPDATE and request for more information

Migraines and dysthymia have been lifelong concurrent problems in addition to the "mental concerts." I know that migraines (like dysthymia) are related to serotonin levels in the brain, but I don't know if high levels of serotonin relieve depression and cause migraines, or vice versa, or if high levels are always best for both.

I stopped the Respirodol treatment because of increased migraines (4 or 5 per week), for which I use Imitrex nasal spray, which increases serotonin levels drastically upon application. This makes me think that high serotonin levels are best for both.

I also took Dr. Bob's epilepsy test, scored high, and plan to visit another neurologist for an EEG.

Any further input of personal or professional experience will be much appreciated.

Thanks, Stuuvert
