I have a history of a high blood pressure and migraine, in August last year i was put on Coversil and was surprised I didn't have a major migraines since then, when usually I had them at least one every three months. Did anyone else experienced this too?

Hello and welcome

I appreciate your concern

Recently studies have shown that antihypertensive and particularly calcium channel blockers and ACE inhibitors do have beneficial effects in preventing migraine headaches. The evidence is not conclusive and these aren’t the primary first line treatments but can be individualised based on the presentation.

Wishing you best of health

Thanks
