I had migraines about 3 years ago, and the doctors put me on periactian. It sustained my headaches. Now though, the migraines have come back, and seeing that periactian is only for kids, I can't use it any more, so I was just wondering, what pill(s) do you people out there take to rid of these awful things?
I have been getting migranes since I was 8. I had them up until I had children and then no headaches. Then, menopause, and ohhhh headaches. My Dr. Who is a great neurologist who just cares for headach patients prescribed imitrex. I take half of a 50 mg at onset. If not gone in 30 minutes take other half. I have been able to get rid of the migrane completely. I have a few sore muscles for a couple hours, but it all goes away.

migraine or usually one sided headache is associated with nausea, vomiting, disturbance in vision for a while, hypersensitiveness to stimulus like light, noise etc. Is a recurrent condition occuring a the slightest pretext in certain individuals. Homeopathy has very good remedies to alleviate the episodes of headache and see that the incidence decreases in intensity and frequency over a period of time.
It is time you tried homeopathic medicine to get rid of your migraine.
When I was pregnant I found that a can of coke and 2 tylenols got rid of my migrianes most effectively. I tooked the tylenol at the onset of my migraine (the aura) and then sipped the coke throughout the next few hours.
None of the medications I tried worked for me. I tried percodan, immitrex and a few others. The only relief I could get was to take a gravol long acting (anti-nausea med) or a sleeping pill to knock me out. After sleeping I would awake with no migraine but I would be fuzzy brained for most of the day.
However after taking the herb feverfew (from the health food store) the migraines were reduced in frequency and intensity. Now they no longer plague me.
I have had headaches since I was 4 yrs old, I have tried everything out there.. It is just not taking a pill it is watching your diet as well, many foods will trigger a migraine such as chicken, chocolate, tea and citrus fruits. The only thing that I found to relieve my headaches was a bc powder or a goodys, however they are very hard on your stomache.. But they work.. I also get in the shower, with the setting as high as it will go( if you have a pulsing shower head) and as hot as I can stand, let that hit the base of your neck. Hope this helps
For migraine, there are no general pills. You have to try different pills in order to know which one work best without side effect in short term and long term. Before taking the pills, usually patient characteristic needed in example : age, height, weight, blood pressure, and how often the attacked was.
