I also take Probiotics, and xanax
From this study (2 months ago):
My official reason for taking this was cluster headaches that were becoming more frequent the older I got. When I was 8(about) years old I had three or four mild tension headaches that would last the entire day. By the time I was 16 there were about 25 headaches ranging from mild to severe a month that would last the entire day. The more severe headaches made it extremely difficult to function.
I also had depression that was increasing from mild to nonexistant when I was younger to more severe and potentially dangerous. The depression almost completely dissapeared after taking this drug. I'm still on it. My Dr and my parents are unaware of the depression so the tension headaches were the primary reason for taking the medication. (50mg)
