Default Migraines

Do you find that drinking caffiene will help to knock out a migraine? I just drank a MT Dew hoping to kill this nasty headache but so far it is not working. Hopefully soon it will subside

caffeine alone will not alleviate a migrane (some studies have shown it improves the effect of OTC pain meds for some ailments)

Migranes usually respond well to reduced levels of sound and light coupled with physician prescribed medication. OTC's are rarely effective for true migranes. ( Not a doctor - just my based on my experience / opinion)

It helps some people.

I find a couple aspirin and 15 minutes of dark & quiet help if I catch the migraine at the very start.

I assume MT Dew is caffeinated...but, no, caffeine doesn't work for me, I have to ride the storm even with pain meds.

Caffiene will help some. Excederine migraine is what I take, it has the caffeine it in.

I can't offer any advice with the coffee unfortunately, but I sympathize, I get migraines all the time.

My Dad had them too, but he went on some medication for them and now they're gone.

Maybe worth a thought.

EDIT: If they're a regular occurrence.
