Is there any OTC relief that you take for your your migraines that really seems to help. I've thought about trying cbd oils but I want to make sure it's something that works. I use a migraine relief liquid stick that I rub on my forehead and neck which seems to help a little bit. I've also used Excedrin with little relief.

      @Samanthaelise I totally 100% agree, they push the meds too much. There are so many side effects from them. Some of the products are pricey but not all. You get what you pay for, especially if you can feel relief in mins vs hours. It’s so worth it.

      Have you tried plant based products to help relieve your pain?

        @TTLOTA no I haven't. All neurologists want to push at me is drugs. And they do not help. Are the fairly decent priced. We are a family on a budget.

      I use prescription strength naproxen. (2 1/2 otc tablets worth) alternated with 800 mg ibuprofen. Depends on how bad the migraine is if it works well.

      It depends on how bad the migraine is. I usually mix ibuprofen and Tylenol, then put a cold rag over my forehead and eyes, and sleep in a very dark room for as long as I can. Lol
