  • I take Excedrin Migraine and it helps. I used to get really bad migraines though and it was b/c of the level of birth control pill I was using so you might want to pay a visit to your dr as well to clear up any medical issues you might be having, Good luck

  • Excedrin is pain relief + caffeine. If you don't have excedrin, take pain reliever with pop or coffee....

  • If it's bad I pop a couple Fiorinal and take some Imitrex. Then I go somewhere dark or take a bath and put a washcloth over my eyes.
