Everyone different: To stop headaches, most doctors would recommend triptans (such as frova, relpax, (eletriptan) maxalt, zomig, etc.), but ergotamines are also of value. Maybe best to prevent and could use botox, depakote, topirimate, beta-blockers, but also might consider otc items such as butterbur, riboflavin, coq-10, feverfew, magnesium.
