How do TCAs actually work to control 
non-migraine headaches? SSRIs aren't common for this, so is it the norepinephrine that is the agent helping?

Great question: Great question! Norepinephrine is definitely involved in the interpretation of pain signals in various areas of the brain.

If you have the bottle from the pharmacy in which the medication came, look at the label and resubmit your question or ask your obstetrician or pharmacist. If you are taking somebody else's pills, it is illegal and dangerous to your health! ...Read more
