In brief: First, avoid trigger
The first thing to do is see if there are any triggers (sleep deprivation, dehydration, specific foods) that you can avoid- many people are able to control migraines very well without any medication at all! if this does not work, see your doctor about abortive medications (e.
g. Nsaids or triptans) and to consider if prophylactic treatment might be right for you.
