Depends: depends on how severe your migraine was and how quickly.you took the abortive medication, the faster you abort the migraine before it escalates into a full blown 10/10 migraine the faster your brain will return to it's normal baseline. I advise my patients to not wait for an hr and treat even a mild headache at the very onset (so long as not treating migraines more than 2 times per week)
