Migraine Treatment and Prevention


Migraine

Migraine Treatment

There is currently no cure for migraine, although a number of prescription treatments are available to ease the symptoms and some that can prevent or help relieve further migraine attacks.

Pain killers, or Anti-inflammatory tablets are often the first line treatment, but if these have not worked, then Triptan medication might be your next option.

Prescription Triptan therapy is not the same as Pain Killers or Anti-inflammatory medication, as it causes the blood vessels around the brain to contract. This reverses the dilating blood vessels, which is believed to be the cause of your Migraine. Triptan medication is available in various forms and strengths.

Imigran Recovery Tablets

Imigran Recovery Tablets

Imigran Recovery Tablets (Sumatriptan) is a effective painkiller specifically used as a migraine treatment. Although the cause of migraine attacks is not fully understood, it is thought that widening of blood vessels in the brain causes the throbbing pain of migraine headaches. Sumatriptan works by stimulating receptors called serotonin (or 5HT) receptors that are found in the brain. A natural substance called serotonin normally acts on these receptors, causing blood vessels in the brain to narrow.

Maxalt Tablets

Maxalt Tablets contain Rizatriptan which is used as a painkiller to relieve the headache phase of the migraine attack in adults. This prescription drug reduces swelling of blood vessels surrounding the brain, this swelling results in the headache pain of a migraine attack. Rizatriptan works by stimulating receptors called serotonin (or 5HT) receptors that are found in the brain. A natural substance called serotonin normally acts on these receptors, causing blood vessels in the brain to narrow. Rizatriptan mimics this action of serotonin by directly stimulating the serotonin receptors in the brain. This narrows the blood vessels and so relieves the pain of migraine headaches.

Migraine Prevention

One of the best ways of preventing migraines is recognising the things that trigger an attack. Some people who experience migraines begin to feel unwell a day or so before a migraine attack, these strange sensations are called the prodrome. We have prescription medication that is known to prevent migraine attacks, which is called Propranolol. (Beta blocker).

This medication is unsuitable for patients with:

  • asthma

  • chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

  • vascular disease or heart failure

Propranolol

Propranolol

Propranolol is a type of medicine called a beta-blocker. Propranolol is a prescription drug which is used to prevent migraines, although it is not fully understood how propranolol works in this area. Beta Blockers work by blocking Beta Receptors which are found in the heart. When they are blocked by propranolol the heart is made to beat more slowly and with less force. This reduces the pressure at which the blood is pumped out of the heart and around the body to the brain, where the  blood vessels contract and prevent the Migraine starting.
