In brief: Many options

Have you been diagnosed with migraines? Many so called migraines are really other types of headache.
See a neurologist. There are preventative (prevent ha) and abortive medications (end ha).

In brief: Prevent of Modify

After appropriate diagnostic workup you need to prevent the headaches as much as possible.
If you truly have migraines, you should be on migraine-specific treatment, genrally the triptan type drugs. For prevention, many of these drugs are quite inexpensive and quite helpful. You need to avoid transforming your headaches into daily or chronic headaches by not getting into a repetitive cycle of meds.
