I had some success with Amerge. It would generally relieve my headache but then it would return 12-24 hours later. I would also feel depressed and moody while taking it, and generally sleepy. Didn't work for me but wortha try for others.

I do not get any real headaches with the aura---just strong feelings of anxiety and wondering if more auras will come. Usually it is one and done. Rarely do I have to take another Amerge.
