In brief: Abortive medication

Light and noise sensitivity occur in about 80% of migraines and are typically relieved along with the headache by use of a symptomatic or abortive migraine medication.
Migraine medications work best taken at the onset of pain. Ibuprofen helps about 45% of people, excedrin about 59%, and sumatriptan tablets about 65%.
