Time is up: The management for migraine involves abortive therapy for the episodic migraine, and prophylactic therapy for the chronic and disabling migraine. If the combo that you took (codeine + paracetamol)l didn’t touch the migraine, you should seek medical assistance from a headache specialist. If not the headache might transform in chronic, rebound, and refractory type.
