Internist Questions Migraine

How can I prevent migraine attacks?

Over the last two months, I've been suffering from weekly migraines. The doctor has recommended medication to treat migraine attacks. I am worried though that there is something underlying going on. What can I do? How can I get to the root of the problem and prevent this?

Avoiding most of the factors that trigger the attack like alcohol, some smells and perfumes, loud sounds, some medicines like weight loss medicines, and energy drinks. Unfortunately, you still can have migraine attacks despite all these precautions. Long-term prevention with meds is only advised if the attack is frequent, otherwise, regular migraine medicines are advised. You need to check with your MD since every case is different.
