  • How often do you get these? If they are common maybe you should get a prescription. Honestly I don't know if there is anything else you can take that would work better, at least not OTC.

  • I get them at least once a week, and sometimes when I take 3 ibuprofen it works. None of the other stuff works. Oh and I also take Advil PM if it's bedtime and I can't sleep because of the migraine.

  • My brother is a doctor and he suggested I take 2 extra strength Tylenol and 3 Advil. Worked for me. He said the two medicines have a synergistic effect.

  • Alkalanize your system...I drink carrot juice for my migraines and they're from hell, I vomit all the livelong day for 3-4 I've citrus, no dairy, no tomato's, vinegar, wine acidic & alkaline foods...almonds are very alkalanzing as well and so is celery...any medications make the system more acidic than it already is like this: acid causing foods or drugs = an acidic system=inflammation= pain.
