Is there any alternative way to treat migraine, than taking medicine ?

Hi. My mother has had a headache on her right hemisphere for 12 hours. At 4:00 am this morning, she took a dose of Excedrin Migraine . It is now 2:17 pm and I am wondering if it would be okay for her to take another dose? Also, is there any other way I can treat her that doesn t include pills?

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You can take this medication but for migraines you need specific medicines like Rizatriptan. You may take the medicine for pain relief but it would be better to take just Acetaminophen/Paracetamol as Aspirin high dose can cause bleeding. Consult a Neurologist for good medication to help you. You should avoid eating chocolates, drinking coffee, exposure to loud noise, exposure to bright light.
