i was talking with my doc about getting relief from the MAOI migraine and he confirmed something i've read concerning effects of noradrenergic receptors ... i.e. they have different effects at different locations in the body!

... tyramine causes increased blood pressure by vasoconstriction ... however ... headaches are caused by vasodilation in the head -- blood vessels swell (dilate) and press against nerves ... (i thought we didn't have pain receptors in the head?) ...

so maybe that's why yous were saying nifedepine doesn't work on migraines??
