  • I lie in a dark room and take Alleve. Mine are very mild though. I only use Alleve for the migraines so I don't build up resistance to it.

  • When I get a migraine I take 4 Advil Liquid Gels and then try to sleep it off in an absolutely silent, totally dark room.

  • I'm on daily Topamax prescription, well the generic of it. It's a preventative. I had headaches almost daily. It works great. They have decreased greatly. But sounds like you don't get them as often as I did, I also take Esgic Plus. It prescription acetamenaphen, caffeine, and butalbital, a barbituate. They are the same as Fioricet, just different brand. The generic is the same. I take those prn for when I get a headache and it knocks it out fast! I LOVE those pills. They work great for me. I have a high tolerance to meds so I have to take 3 or 4 but usual dose is 1 to 2 pills per headache. Id ask about them. They gave me my life back.
