There are some prophylactic medications to be taken for migraine

But first it shoule be diagnosed as Migraine

The only pain medication that can be safely taken for pregnant female is Paracetmol

All others have to be taken only on seeing the treating Gynecologist advice each time

Pregnancy restricts a person to take any medicines without consulting the doctor and proper examination by hhim / her

Eucalyptus oil, Tea tree oil, Hot shower, Usual balms like Zandu Balm, Amrutanjan
