there are many different approaches that we use to treat people who suffer from migraine in general we divide the therapies into acute medications and preventative medications the acute medications or medications taken at the onset of the headache to shorten the attack of pain and hopefully to get rid of the associated symptoms the nausea and vomiting for instance we divide the acute medications into two broad categories symptomatic medications and specific medications a symptomatic medication is not just for migrant it can be used for pain or for nausea and vomiting for any reason it can include over-the-counter medications like aspirin or Tylenol or medications combined like with caffeine like excedrin for instance or certain prescription medications the prescription forms of anti-inflammatory medications as well specific agents on the other hand work just for migraine and the beauty of these agents is that they target not only the head pain but the associated features the nausea the vomiting the lighting the sound and the smell sensitivity they work quickly they don't cause sedation in general and they're not addicting agents like those include the triptans sumatriptan or imitrex Rhys a trip to nur max salt or various forms those medications forgot amines and died hi Joe regatta mean like my Grinnell nasal spray and several others again these agents target the headaches specifically not generally for people who have very frequent attacks of migraine frequent defined as more than one headache per month we will often use preventative agents preventative agents fall in several different categories high blood pressure medications antidepressant medications and anti-seizure medications these agents have been shown to decrease both the frequency and severity of attacks of migraine letting patients go on to live a normal life
