Migraine Treatment Getting Easier to Take

Vital Information:

  • Migraine sufferers have a hard time getting relief because the available medications can cause side effects, pills can be difficult to swallow because of nausea, and the drugs just don't work well for some people.
  • One recent improvement is a new form of the drug Imitrex, now available as a nasal spray, which may be a good option for teenage migraine sufferers.
  • Two other drugs, Maxalt MLT and Zomig (which is not yet available commercially), are now made in fast-dissolving, flavored versions and could be useful for those who have nausea and can't keep anything down.
