How to stop a migraine? Migraine medicine. I suffered from migraines since middle school. After graduating from college, they would get worse with nausea. Throwing up 2 or 3 times and usually at every half hour (how consistent, like me!). Two years ago I finally got migraine medicine, Relpax. It doesn't work for everyone of course. Take one, yes it will make you sleepy, but a few hours of sleep is far better than 18 hours of pain and suffering.
The other medicine that helped? Birth control. Controlled the hormones while I maintain to a schedule of waking up and going to bed, staying away from triggers (extreme sudden temperatures i.e. hot day to a freezing room, fans blowing on me, etc) and it has made a big difference. I can still get a migraine, but rarely now.
Everyone is different, experimentation is required. Good luck!
