In brief: Who knows

That's the billion dollar question--whoever comes up with a universal answer will be a billionaire.
Unfortunately, causes and types of migraine are so varied there is no simple, common treatment that works for everyone (or for even a majority). You need to discover what causes your migraines and eliminate those causes from your life if possible to even begin to figure out the answer for you.

In brief: Its individual

Everyone is a bit different in terms of what works for them. Try simple rest in a quiet, dark place first.
Excedrin migraine is a good choice for a medicine if needed, although many respond to plain tylenol (acetaminophen) or advil or alleve. If these don't work, consider seeing your health care provider to consider if something else is causing your headache, or if a prescription medicine may help.
