How do doctors treat status migrainosus?

ANSWER

If you have to go to an emergency room or stay in the hospital because of status migrainosus, doctors may need to treat other problems the migraine causes as well as the migraine itself.

In the hospital, doctors may give you drugs and fluids through an IV to control pain and treat dehydration.
