Migraine can take its toll on a person, preventing him or her from doing much of the usual activities effectively. When an attack happens, there can be little to do – especially when you are just stuck on taking pain medications that don’t work for you. What you need is a proven cure.
The following are easy ways in alleviating the pain and nausea caused by migraine:
OTC pain relievers. The good old pain medications work well with mild migraines. These are the kind of headaches that don’t hinder you from doing your everyday activities. Aspirin, acetaminophen, and ibuprofen are some of the meds that can alleviate pain after a couple of minutes.
Prescription drugs. These are the kinds of drugs given to patients experiencing severe migraines. Your doctor will be able to prescribe you with the more effective ones, such as the gold-standard triptan.
Migraine-prevention drugs. Frequent migraines can be such a pain. If you get two or more attacks every month, you will be most likely prescribed with these kinds of medications. They can cut the frequency of your migraine attacks by half.
Medical treatment of migraine headache needs to be done by a certified neurologist or headache specialist. But when symptoms persist even after following these, Botox injections or migraine surgery could work well on you.
