A migraine is a severe form of headache which usually feels like a throbbing pain at the sides or front of the head. Other symptoms can include nausea and experiencing a sensitivity to light or sound. Migraines are common and affect around 1 in 5 women but only around 1 in 15 men. They typically start in early adulthood.

There is no known cure for a migraine but there are a number of treatments available to help manage the symptoms effectively. Treatments include pain killers, triptans and anti-emetics.

I have been suffering with migraines for 4 years now. I have tried practically all over the till medication there is and found nothing worked. I was left crying and still in a sorry state. The Dr prescribed me these tablets and they work wonders. I take the 50g when I feel it coming on but the 100g when I know Im going to be hit hard by a migraine. They work within 30 mins. I found that when I take a tablet my arms feel limp and I feel a bit light headed but that soon goes. Id rather sit and have that short feeling than the migraine.
