What is the most effective way to get rid of a migraine headache?
I’ve tried Excedrin migraine, but it doesn’t seem to work for me. Any advice?
Do caffeine pills work just as good as drinking something with high caffeine? Since I don’t like either soda or coffee.

There are losts of good answers, but the best answer:

    Oh, man, I feel your pain.
    I get migraines constantly, and absolutely nothing helps.
    The only thing that makes it go away is either luck, or sleep.
    I sometimes even wake up with it. But I’d say just lie in darkness and sleep it off.

    Motrin works really well. Try drinking a couple glasses of water. Many headaches are caused when someone becomes dehydrated.

    Caffeine. Caffeine is the trick to opening the vessels in your head to release the pressure of the migraine. Since you have already taken Excedrin migraine (which is acetaminophen…Tylenol, and caffeine), take 2 Benadryl (an antihistamine will open the vessels in your head too), drink as much caffeine as you can stand (Mountain Dew has THE most caffeine of any soda), put an ice pack on the back of your neck, and lay down. I hope it subsides quickly.
