Medications
A MyMigraineTeam Member asked a question 💭

If I catch the migraine early enough it will bring my migraine to a "bad headache" level within an hour, and taking two pills a day will get me through a 2-3 day migraine to the point where I can actually go to work. I stock up on the meds (always getting my monthly dose) in case I have more than one migraine in a month.

When it's covered by insurance, it's affordable (I've… read more
