There are three different types of medications for migraines:
  • Drugs that relieve pain or other symptoms of migraines
  • Drugs that stop a migraine headache (abortive drugs): Take these drugs at the first sign of a migraine attack to stop them. They prevent common symptoms like pain, nausea, and sound and light sensitivity.
  • Drugs that prevent your headaches: Take these drugs regularly to keep migraines attacks from happening. They lessen the number and severity of your headaches.
