  • I have friends that really get them and they are on something called Klonopin (both of them) which a neurologist prescribed. Also, botox is now being used for migraines, which is amazing. You can try acupuncture, meditation or good old fashioned pain killers.

  • I have had Migraines since I was 10 that is when I got my period. And I have been on so many diff meds for them but sleep in a dark room till I feel better and usually when I wake up it is worse then gets better after an hour. When I was pregnant I didn't have as many and now I get them more often and they are worse then ever. Their is an herbal supplement and I forgot what it is called something with a F and it works you can find it at your local vitiam shop.

  • I've tried everything that I could find in drugstores, everything that's been prescribed, and all the home remedies I've found. The only things that make mine more bearable are cigarettes, sleep and a little alcohol. Weed also helped the couple of times I tried it, but since that's illegal pretty much everywhere, it's not really an option.

  • I use Hyland's tablets for migraines, and they really help me. Frequency varies, but I definitely get them more when I'm stressed out.

  • Yes. Luckily, I can control mine with really strong ibuprofen and a dark room. Sometimes, I get split and/or double vision, and that's freakin' scary.
