What is the best migraine medicine you have tried, and why is it the best?
i have had migraines off and on for years, due to a car accident. The last 2 years, the migraines have cropped up more often and my physician will prescribe a headache med for me to have on hand. The problem is, she says that they are all very similar.

So , the question for yahoo users will be, in your personal migraine encounters, what prescription migraine medicine worked best, and were there side effects, etc?

Thanks!

There are maybe a lot of solutions for this question. But I think the best answer is:

Answer simply by IndyMom
I have had migraines for 30 years. None are the best. The question is in finding the best one for you. You are the only one who can determine that will. Ask the Doc. in order to prescribe the migraine contraceptive medications one at a time until you find the one that works best for you.

I personally use Imitrex. I have also attempted Maxalt, Zomig and all of the others that I don’t remember the names of. Imitrex has been the best for me.

The key with any of these is to take them immediately, as soon as you realize that the pain is arriving or expect that it is heading to migraine level. If you wait around until you have a full taken migraine, no medication will work.

Keep a daily headache journal when you try the new medications. At the end of a few days, or several weeks depending on how often you get them, you will have the details for the Doctor. Help them to help you.

Best of luck.
