Vaporizer: Many people are sensitive to extreme changes in barometric pressure. Often there is dry hot air followed by heavy humid weather. This triggers migraine in many. When dry use vaporizer and pretreat with decongestants. As soon as headache starts use Aspirin and tylenol (acetaminophen) together.

Its individual: Everyone is a bit different in terms of what works for them. Try simple rest in a quiet, dark place first. Excedrin migraine is a good choice for a medicine if needed, although many respond to plain tylenol (acetaminophen) or advil or alleve. If these don't work, consider seeing your health care provider to consider if something else is causing your headache, or if a prescription medicine may help.
