Hi Molly! Did you know that 85% of migraine sufferers are women?? Unfortunate really lol, but I get them as well. I realized much of understanding how best to treat my migraines was trial-and-error. I’ve tried topiramate, triptans (like imitrex), propanolol and many more. About 6 years in, I am finally on a regulated regimen that helps me. I receive botox injections every three months (sounds crazy but it works) and I have just begun using the new autoinjector Aimovig. Both are preventative and greatly improved my quality of life! Happy to answer any questions you may have.

Listing below some suggestions:

Natural Supplements you can take for prevention: Magnesium, Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), and Coenzyme Q10.
Life Style Changes: Drink A LOT of water, eat every 4-6 hours, and make sure you’re getting a full 8 hours or close to. Cutting-out triggers (like caffeine or high sugars) is hard, but worth it in the long run.
