  • OMG... everything in my house. I find that if I can catch it in time, a cocktail of aspirin, tylenol, caffeine and an antihistamine can usually give me some relief.

  • Sniff cayenne pepper. It goes away in a few seconds after that.

  • When my migraines were really bad, I was prescribed Imitrex. That stuff is amazing. For regular migraines, I love excedrin.

  • I take Fioricet. It that does not work, I take Imitrex. I have not had a migraine in a long time. Bad headaches, but not a migraine.
