Migraines: What a Pain! What are the medications that prevent migraines?

Some people take medications on a daily basis to reduce both the number and severity of their migraines.

Am I a candidate for preventative medications?

You could be a candidate if:14

  • You experience migraine attacks that impair normal daily activities despite using medications for your migraines
  • Your pain relief medication does not work or it is causing serious side effects
  • You need to take migraine medications more than 15 days/month or more than 2 to 3 times/week
  • You have a migraine attack at least 3 times per month


If you experience any of the above, contact your doctor to see if you are a candidate for medications that may help to prevent migraines.
