easy child started taking Anafranil on Monday. It seems to be helping her Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) a little already but she is still having headaches daily. I called her neurologist to see if there is anything she can take for migraines for pain short term while we figure out if the anafranil is working. He said there is nothing else she can take, that we have already tried everything and that the psychiatrist needs to figure out something she can take with the amitriptyline. Unfortunately, the Anafranil is pretty much our last hope for treating the Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). I know there are kids here being treated for migraines with something other than amitriptyline. She also tried something before that was an antihistamine that helped migraines. I don't remember what that was. Are there other options? Preferably something that can be short term since the anafranil may not work out and we would go back to the amitriptyline, probably.
