Need to evaluate: Agree with Dr Grin regarding pinning down headache characteristics, as some different patterns will respond to different preventative meds. Generically, many prescription preps such as propanalol, Depakote, Topamax, (topiramate) diltiazem, but many OTC items such as riboflavin, butterbur, magnesium. Your doctor can design an appropriate preventative program.
