Migraine Treatments

Acute migraine treatment can be with painkillers or triptans. Not all painkillers work well for a migraine. Most people find Aspirin or Ibuprofen more effective than Paracetamol or Codeine. Triptans are not painkillers but can be effective for treating migraine due to they way mimic Serotonin. Other useful migraine medications include stronger versions of ibuprofen, called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and anti-sickness drugs. During a migraine attack, the stomach can cease functioning meaning medications can be poorly absorbed. Ways around this include using large doses of drugs (e.g. aspirin 900mg or ibuprofen 600mg), dissolving the drug in water (some recommend a fizzy drink) and adding an anti-sickness drug that also promotes the normal emptying of the stomach, such as domperidone 20mg (only available by prescription from your GP). T Frequent attacks, or little response to acute treatment, may lead to treatment every day with a preventative drug. These mostly work on serotonin, which requires gradual change and can take up to a few months to work. Usually, it is best to start with acute treatment, keep a migraine diary, address migraine triggers, then later think about migraine prevention.
