Suggest Treatment For Recurring Migraines

For about a year, I have had intermittent headaches in my right temple. In October, along with the headaches, I had a migraine. In November, three migraines, and the headaches increased. This month, so far, four migraines, complete with nausea and partial blindness and severe headaches. Pain medication numbs the pain, but I can still feel pressure.

Since you having recurring migraines which is increasing in frequency, it is better to go for preventive therapy for migraine. You can start on tablet propronolol - a drug which reduces sympathetic activity; it should be continued for minimum period of six months. If it is not effective, then you can take tablet such as Amitryptyline. If this drug is also not effective you can try tablet such as Topiramate and sodium Valproate.
