Brief Answer: Following medicines would help you. Detailed Answer: Hi Mr XXXXXXX Thank you for posting your query. It is unfortunate that you are suffering from migraine for past eight years and have not received proper medical treatment. Since you have frequent headaches, you would benefit from taking preventive medications that would reduce the severity and frequency of headaches. These medicines include beta blockers, flunarizine, divalproex, topiramate and botox injections. In addition, for relief of headache, you could take rizatriptan or vasograin tablets, which are very safe and effective in providing immediate relief to pain. I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.
