Try riboflavin: First, be sure that you have a correct diagnosis of migraine. Migraines are pulsatile , usually one-sided, last hours, and cause disability including nausea and vomiting. They often run in families. Next, be sure you aren't overusing advil (ibuprofen) or other otc's that can cause rebound headache. Finally, try riboflavin 400mg daily to prevent them. It's a b vitamin, has helped a number of my patients.
