I have been getting almost daily migraine headaches. I have seen a few doctors and now a neurologist. They have put me on all sorts of antidepressants and nothing has helped the headaches. Now I am going to be taking Maxalt (I know this works for me. I took it years ago and it worked wonders if I caught the headache early). The problem is my insurance...I have a $200.00 deductible. I will have to pay that for the frist NINE pills. I will have to pay $50.00 for every NINE after that. I also can only get nine each month. With almost daily migraines that isn't much. I have had tests done (MRI's, EEG, you name it) and everything is normal. I was just told some people just have to deal with it. What are some of the things that I can do without meds to help? I lay down in a very dark and quiet room etc but what am I missing?Answer Question

I have migraines also they started when I was about 15. Most recently I have used rubbing alcohol the smell eases the discomfort. That is the only remedy I know.
