Migraine Headaches !!!!!!

Migraine headaches produce an intense throbbing, pulsing pain in one area of the head. The pain is often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to sound and light.

Migraine sufferers usually have recurring headaches that are triggered by stress, anxiety, lack of food, eating little sleep, or exposure to bright lights. Women are three times more likely to have migraine headaches than men, likely because of changes in hormone levels. Heredity may also play a role in who experiences migraines.

Some people have success preventing migraines from occurring. Preventing a migraine can be easier than stopping a migraine once it has begun.

Some of the commonly prescribed medications for migraine prevention are:
Beta blocker cardiovascular drugs like Propranolol (brands Inderal La, Innopran XL etc.), Verapamil (Calan, Verelan, etc.)
Antidepressants like Amitriptyline, Protriptyline (Vivactil), nortriptyline (Pamelor)
Anti-seizure drugs like Valproate (Depacon), Topiramate (Topamax), and Gabapentin (Neurontin)

Women whose migraines are triggered by menstrual cycles can prevent headaches with hormone therapy. Sometimes lifestyle changes like managing stress with relaxation and exercise, eating regular meals on a schedule, avoiding foods or drinks that trigger headaches, and forming a regular schedule for sleeping.
