Prophylactic remedies...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Migraine is a type of chronic headache. Acute headaches are relieved with pain medicines that are available over the counter. However if this issue is a very frequent you will need other remedies. So before I list you the treatment options, may I know how frequently does she suffer with migraine and what treatments has she tried.

Awaiting your reply....

Brief Answer:
Continue normal pain killer...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

If those episodes don't affect her badly, then I suggest her to continue using the routine pain killer as and when required. The key here is to take the pain medicine early. Do not wait for migraine to become full blown to take the pain medicines.

In the interim, some migraineurs have known trigger factors that induce a migraine attack. She can keep a dairy which will help her identify those triggers if any. In generally, I strongly advice them to avoid sun exposure, avoid late night sleeping, be regular with sleep timings and avoid fasting. Avoid any other triggers if there are any.

It would be worthwhile to consult a physician especially if those headaches are very strong and disturbs daily activities. There are few preventive medicines which are used daily. Those are very effective in preventing migraines. They can be started strictly under guidance.

Hope this answers your question.
