In brief: Migraine

First, be sure it is migraine.
See; http://www.Nlm.Nih.Gov/medlineplus/migraine.Html or read freedom from headaches by saper and magee. Second, try the generic version of excedrin (which has acetaminophen, Aspirin and caffeine combined), or Naproxen (trade name aleve). Third, if you truly have migraine, learn which foods are your migraine triggers, and then learn when to avoid those foods.

In brief: Treat early

I assume you've tried various over the counter meds.
You need to treat early and normally i combine a triptan medication with an anti inflammatory medication as long as it's safe for you with other potential health issues.
