Excedrin MIgraine is: an effective OTC medication. You should be examined and given Rx for severe migraine or a migraine variant / Aleve ( if not allergic in a doses of 2 tab initially ( 440 mg) can be quite effective. Meditation, prayer, massage therapy, aroma therapy and exercise will all help; however, a physical exam is your best first move.
