    I always have to 'sleep it off'...
    2 out of 10 times eating a meal + 2x 400mg Ibuprofen can work...

    Haha, funny this topic should come up.

    I'm just revising this for my pharmacy exams at uni.

    There's a few solutions here:

    1) Cold ice pack on head
    2) Go to sleep in a dark quite room for a couple of hours until the pain wears off (suffer in silence).
    3) If your suffering from acute migraine you can try Ergotamine tartrate (consult doctor),

    Hope this helps :)

    took the ibuprofen about 10 minuted before throwing up so i'll have some dinner with a couple more and go to sleep me thinks (luckily it's night here, just have to make the kids leave me alone)

    Do you get the "aura" on the onset of the migraine?

    Yeah that's all i can do to get rid of the bad one's is to just lay down in a dark cool room and sleep it off. I got some non narcotic meds called Maxalt that work if i catch it in time.

    careful with point 1.. depending on your migraine (and the phase) it might be warmth that will be helping you and cold can make it worse..
