Thank you for posting your query.

Migraine is a chronic condition, and medicines may be required for a long time.

If you are getting more than two episodes of headache per month, you will need to take preventive medications to prevent recurrence of headaches. Flunarizine and Sibelium (which you took earlier) belong to this category. Other drugs in this category include beta blockers, Topiramate, etc.

For relief of headache, you may take rizatriptan or vasograin, as and when necessary.

Wishing you good health,
