I noticed after my last couple of migraines, that if I took Vicodin I wasn't as prone to get ticked off at my kids when they're doing things that annoy me - like fighting and then carrying on excessively.
So, yesterday and today I was a bit depressed, pms-ing and really irritable, but didn't have a migraine. I took Vicodin to see what it would do for me, and I was calm and not irritable at all.
I've been more depressed and more irritable lately, but I'm not on an anti-depressant right now. Is there an anti-depressant that will make me less depressed and less irritable, but not sleepy or lethargic, help with the irritability, not affect my cognitive abilities, and not cause weight gain? Ah, the perfect med. right?
Should I tell my pdoc what the Vicodin did for me, or would taking it when I didn't have a migraine be a no-no? I mean rationally, I know I shouldn't take it when I don't have a migraine, but does it help to know it affected my mood like that? I'd hate to lose the one thing that really helps when I have a raging migraine.
