A migraine is an independent neurological disease, its main but not the only symptom is a headache. In addition to a headache, migraine is accompanied by nausea, vomiting, intolerance to loud sounds and bright light, odors, and in some cases, a number of other neurological symptoms. It is not yet possible to cure migraines fully. There are methods of treatment that make it possible to reduce the frequency of migraine attacks to zero.
Women suffer from a migraine at least three times more often than men do. This is due to the hormonal background and its constant fluctuations in the process of a woman’s life: from monthly changes to the periods of pregnancy, childbirth, and lactation. Proof of this is the fact that with the onset of menopause in most women, migraine attacks become less frequent or even disappear completely.
Medication effect on migraine is carried out in two directions: elimination of a headache during attacks and prevention of their occurrence.
Every patient needs medical products for the elimination of pain during an attack. But the preventive reception of drugs is shown only to those patients who have seizures more often than 2-3 times a month and that are very difficult, that is, such a treatment becomes necessary when a migraine becomes a “boss” in the life of a patient.
To eliminate a headache, the following groups of medicines are accepted:
- analgesics and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs,
- medicines containing ergot alkaloids,
- triptans (serotonin agonists).
There is a step-by-step approach to the treatment of migraine headaches. It consists of the following: with the appearance of signs indicating the onset of a migraine attack, or at the time of the onset of a headache, an analgesic or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug should be taken. To ensure proper absorption and not to provoke vomiting, it is recommended to combine the intake of an analgesic with such drugs as Metoclopramide or Domperidone.
To increase the analgesic effect, the drugs can be combined with Caffeine. Caffeine can be taken in the form of coffee, tea, cocoa, Coke, or it is also possible to use a ready-made combination.
If you cannot take the medicine because of nausea and vomiting, you should use an analgesic in rectal suppositories.
Another possible cause of migraines is complications in a period of rehabilitation after surgery. In this case, you can take more powerful drugs, for example, Tramadol. You can buy it easily in our online pharmacy at a bargain price: this powerful analgesic will save you even from severe pain.
