In brief: Sometimes needed

Migraines have many types and symptoms, so evaluation and management can be helped with consultation with neurologist or headache md.
Prevention is helpful, such as use of botox. Early treatment with prescription meds are often indicated, especially if you are very ill with the migraines. These can shorten or minimize migraine problems when taken very early in the process.
