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.
