NOT MAJOR TASK: At onset of migraine, triptan drugs can often stop headache within 2 or less hrs. Best approach of course is prevention, which can be achieved with either otc preps or prescription meds. Botox is often a great approach. Many pts find that a few hours of sleep can eliminate the headache. See a neurologist for further guidance.
