In the interim, you can treat these migraine headaches with Ibuprofen/NSAID's, beta blockers, tricyclics and the list goes on, what is important is to mention this to your doctor as you may already be on a medication that could be increased to curb the migraines. Also the medications that may treat the migraines may have contraindications to other medications you are already taking, I hope this helps, and good lcuk
