Medicines for migraines?
Any suggested drugs for migraines?
Answer by Kara
My sister has the disease, Daily Chronic Migraines. She’s been on everything from vitamins to sedatives and anti-histamines. Talk to a nuerologist near you, he’ll have you track all your symptoms, your migraines, what you were doing, when you ate around the time, etc etc. Trust me, you can get A LOT of help from doctors, rather than people here.
What do you think? Answer below!
I’ve gotten them for years. I have found that if I take Excedrine Migraine at the very first hint of any kind of a headache I’m fine. I’ve never had it fail me. Good luck to you.
excedrine miagraine OTC, ergotamine RX, fioricet RX
I know that this is NOT alternative medicine, if that’s what you’re looking for… but Imitrex. It works for me every time. The injections work the fastest. I WOULD NOT recommend the nasal spray. The drip that goes down the back of your throat afterward has a TERRIBLE taste. If you are nauseated from the migraine it will likely make you throw up. The pills are effective too, they just take a long time. So if you can stand giving yourself a subcutaneous injection, I’d say us the shots. (And if you can afford them. The patent isn’t up yet so you can’t get generic… they’re quite expensive.)
try a tincture of feverfew

I would recommend that you keep a journal of what you eat, and find the foods that are triggering migranes.
Wheat is a trigger for my migranes.
I stopped eating pasta, white bread, etc. and my frequency of migranes went from having one every week ro haveing one every 6-8 weeks.
When I feel a migrane coming on. I take the following.
1. Goody’s headache powder
2. eat a chocolate bar
3. drink a coca cola
All of these have cafeine, and cafeine resrticts the blood vessels, and reduce the pressure.
The homeopathic fellow is only offering you water. Use that to wash down the imitrex, since that actually treats the cause of the disease. See a doctor. They will offer you solutions (no pun intended) that actually work.
I would do like others said here.. Start a journal.. and see what is triggering your migraines in the first place.. Weather it be stress, or foods. or other.. you would want to know..
I am unsure of all the meds out there that can help with these.. I know my husband gets them often.. but not so much no more..
I have a girlfriend that got them every day almost.. and she was in huge pain.. I know now.. she doesn’t get them hardly at all.. She is taking a very powerful mineral drink.. and that is helping her.. I can contact her and see what all she has to say.. I can’t imagine going thru life with a headache all the time.. that would just not be friendly at all… Wish you luck..
