In brief: Cautiously

There is no cure for migraine.
When frequency and intensity reach a point of interfering with function, a trial of daily preventative medication is warranted. Low doses should be tried first and increased only if some benefit. Need to carefully balance benefit to side effect. Discuss with your primary doctor and contact local migraine expert or migraine clinic.
