What’s the best preventative medication you’ve had luck with? I’ve suffered chronic migraines since I was able to remember. My current pcp doesn’t listen when I tell me medications aren’t working and I would like to be able to go in and advocate for myself a bit more with knowing how others deal with it.

      I've been prescribed topiramate for years and it's been wonderful

      So far I've just been taking supplements - magnesium and riboflavin - to help. My migraines have gotten largely under control, but there are definitely more factors than just the Mg and B2.

      Sandomigran(aka pizotifen). I've had no luck on many other medications, but I've gone from having 3-4 migraines a week to maybe 1-2 a month on pizotifen. But a lot of people experience weight gain on it, so that might be something to consider for the pros and cons of this medication

      I get migraines but not chronically, usually tied to overworking myself or the weather. Since I started the beta blocker propranolol I've had way less of them! I still get migraines but very rarely, I take a very small dose once daily bc I have a sensitivity to it (ME/CFS related). Idk your med or health history but I think it's worth looking into if you want

      Tylenol helps me, but I can't use aspirin.

"Some people have found success with different medications. One person mentioned that they take Topamax twice daily and it has helped them in preventing migraines. Another person uses Eletriptan, which helps manage the pain 90% of the time without causing nausea. Yet another person takes Aimovig every 28 days as an injection and Effexor every morning, along with Botox injections every three months. However, these haven't slowed down or helped their migraines, but they might help others."
