Default Zonagram

I took Zonagram about a year ago and it was one of the worst drugs that I ever took as far as possible side effects go. They had given it to me as a preventative for migraine headaches. I started to have a heaviness come over my body and then I started to get the cold sweats and then I got so dizzy that I had to sit down no matter where I was at the time. I was on my knees one night praying. I was propped up against my bed with my elbows resting on the bed and I got the sweat and then the dizziness came on me so bad that I had to literally climb on the bed and lay down. I felt so bad that I had to go to PT First the next day and discontinued use. I hope everyone is careful when being put on any new drug. Some of the side effects are far worse than the medical problems that we face on a day to day basis. I would rather be in severe pain, vomiting, in a hospital with IV's like I have had to do many times for 3-5 days at a time with a migraine then to still have the migraines and be so dizzy I can not function at all as a human being. Please be careful taking this drug.
