Best Cure for Migraine

What is the Best Cure for Migraine?

Treatment of migraine is very tricky. A single universal cure for all migraines is yet to be discovered. What exist now in the medical field are medicines that are either aimed at reducing the pain when taken at the onset of an attack, or aimed at decreasing the frequency and intensity of the migraine attacks when taken regularly.

Other than natural remedies and healthy lifestyle changes, there is still no sure way to cure migraines for good. And the quick remedies pose a lot of health risks when taken continuously.

For pain relief, there are pain relievers like ibuprofen and aspirin but doctors advice against taking them regularly, especially to those who suffer from chronic migraine. Chronic migraine involves painful severe headaches for more than 15 days per month, with at least 8 of them migraine attacks. Prolonged use of pain relievers may lead to more headaches and even internal bleeding.

Another drug for headache relief is Triptans, but it poses the risk of stroke or heart attack. Dihydroergotamines can have side effects such as nausea and vomiting accompanied by worse migraines. Opioids can reduce migraines but can be highly addictive.

As for preventive medicines such as blood pressure lowering drugs, antidepressants, anti-seizures, and calcitonin gene-related peptide antibodies, they all pose risks and side effects as well. These include sleepiness, weight gain, low blood pressure, nausea and possible infections.

For most preventive medication, Botox has been reported to have the least side effects and risks if none at all. Botox injections have seen significant decrease in days of attacks for chronic migraine sufferers. Most even reporting to have very good days where they experience no headaches at all.

Furthermore, unlike most preventive and relief medications, the effectiveness of Botox in controlling headaches for people with migraines have seen steady increase with prolonged use. For most medicines, the effectiveness decreases and over usage poses severe threats to the health.

Upon considering the medications that either prevent or relieve the pain of migraines, weighing the side effects and risks against the effectiveness of reducing frequency and intensity of pain, Botox may well be the best cure for migraine that exist today in the medical field.
