hello dr,
glad to help you.I think the type of headache you are facing with it is migraine and you need prophylaxis to prevent the atatcks.Preventive migraine medications are considered effective if they reduce the frequency or severity of the migraine attacks by at least 50%.Guidelines are fairly consistent in rating topiramate, divalproex/sodium valproate, propranolol, and metoprolol as having the highest level of evidence for first-line use.Recommendations regarding effectiveness varied however for gabapentin.Timolol is also effective for migraine prevention and in reducing migraine attack frequency and severity, while frovatriptan is effective for prevention of menstrual migraine.Amitriptyline and venlafaxine are probably also effective.Botox has been found to be useful in those with chronic migraines but not those with episodic ones.thank you.
