Unusual: It's not my first choice. In fact I have never prescribed it for migraines. But some doctors use it. Is this like a third or fourth choice? Are you to take it daily or just as needed? There are other things to try depending on frequency and severity of your headaches and your overall cardiovascular risk factor
