Treating Your Migraine Headache
Types of Treatment continued...
Combination painkillers. Acetaminophen, aspirin, and caffeine combined into one pill are a safe option for people with blood vessel problems. And you don't need a prescription for it.
Corticosteroids. Studies show that people who have hard-to-treat headaches, a history of recurring headaches, or status migrainosus -- a severe type of migraine -- can benefit from taking the steroid prednisone.
Anti-nausea medications. In addition to curbing nausea, these drugs may also help you absorb your pain medication.
