When I have a migraine I take a paracetamol but I guess it takes me 30 minutes before I feel relieved. Do you know some medicines that work fast and gives relief in seconds. Hope you will share it with me. Thanks...

Hi, i'll answer Ur question in 2parts. Firstly,take aspirin tab('if U r not susceptible'),after light snack-instead of paracetamol.likely U'll be getting faster pain relief. Secondly,start with ice followed by hot massage.this will reduce intensity of pain. =Lahiri,Kolkata,india.

Whenever I have a migraine, the first thing I do is take something to eat, then take mefenamic acid and then lie down in a dark room. I try to sleep so that I would not be able to feel the pain, hoping that when I wake up, it is gone. Migraine is something I am really afraid of. So when I see the signs that one is coming up -- I see white circles and I am not able to see well, everything is too bright -- I do not wait for the feel anymore. I go home immediately, no exceptions. Have a nice day!

I also try to sleep after taking the medicine but I really find it hard because its too painful. I can't really explain how painful it is. Sometimes I vomit.When I was able to sleep and when I wake up the pain is still there. But with different intensity. Its like somebody hit me in the head. Thank you for sharing your experience. Good day to you!!

When I get a migraine there is nothing that will shift it. If I catch the symptoms in time and take an over the counter migraine tablet I can often stop it from progressing. There are a variety of tablets that can be bought from the pharmacy and unfortunately it is trial and error finding one that will work for you. Migraines are awful. And I hope that you find something that works for you.

well migrane is a common ailment in this world...and theres no permanant curee for it...but it can be controlled.....and very efficiently...first of all u have to visit ur physician! he can really help u... paracetamol can relieve ur pain upto a certain extent..but beyond a threshold...it cant...a better option is drinking tea or coffee...actually coffee which contains caffaine and theobromin constrict ur bloodvessels in the brain which reduce the blood supply in the sinus because of which u have migrane....a cup of black coffee can really help......
