Some medications, like metformin, are given to patients to control related symptoms. You might discuss this with your gynecologist or family doctor. Another option is topiramate, used for migraine, but also helps you lose weight. ...Read more

Migraine and stroke: Do you have aura with your migraines? The stroke risk is increased if you have migraine with aura and use estrogen-containing birth control.
