  1. Do you know of any caffeine free, over the counter meds that help stop a migraine in its tracks?
    I always get very nauseous and vomit when I have an attack and the caffeine is hard on an empty stomach. I used to take Imitrex but even with insurance its a little over $100 and due to some lifestyle changes (I think) I've been able to reduce the frequency of my attacks. Now I've been taking almost 4 Excedrine Migraines at once (gasp, my liver, I know) but it's the only thing that stops them. I had a migraine over the weekend and I must have threw up 6 times and the Excedrine made my stomach burn.

    So sorry to hear your attacks are so terrible. Would welcome any advice! Thanks
