Migraine Medications and Treatments

Migraine Medications and Treatments

Migraine is not life threatening, but it can destroy the quality of your life. The first thing that you must recognise is that ultimately, migraine is your own responsibility. Your GP, Pharmacist, Practice nurse, your friends, colleagues and family will all be supportive, but it is up to you to initiate action in managing the condition as best you can.

Resist the common temptation to push the whole issue aside as soon as an attack subsides. Instead, work on how you can prevent or curtail the next attack. Start by finding out more about how migraine can be managed.

Although there is no ‘cure’ for migraine, it can be effectively managed through a combination of medical treatments and self-help approaches.
