Exploring lifestyle modifications and adaptations is extremely important in limiting the number and severity of attacks. Your healthcare provider is a great resource for these modifications.
Identifying and avoiding triggers is extremely important in treating migraines. Aerobic exercise, relaxation and consistency of a daily schedule is also important (not skipping meals, hydration, regular bedtime).
New in migraine treatment are lifestyle devices or neuromodulators. These devices use electrical or magnetic pulses to calm the electrical wave and/or vagus nerve such as nausea and sweating associated with migraine. Ask your healthcare provider for more information.
Medical management is also sometimes necessary. This can include: beta blockers, calcium channel blockers, tricyclic antidepressants, SSRI or SNRI’s, or topiramate.
