In brief: Depends...
It depends upon the type of migraine; and the rest of your medical history(other conditions, any alleriges?, any other medications that you take, etc.
) some neurologists use anaprox ds; others prefer imitrex (sumatriptan)...Usually practitioner preference; again keeping the above about you in mind. Cheers!

In brief: Varies by patient
Medicines can be very effective.
However, each medicine only works for certain patients. Migraines have a complex etiology. You should be under the care of a neurologist.
