My Migraine and Headache Preventive Regimen

The preventive regimen that my doctor and I developed that minimizes the frequency of my headaches and Migraine attacks and reduces their severity is a combination of prescription medications and dietary supplements. Please note that you should consult your doctor before modifying your regimen. I share this with you for your information, but it is not medical advice and cannot take the place of consulting your doctor.

Prescription Medications:
(Total dosage per day)
  • Verelan PM, 400mg
    (verapamil)1
  • Savella, 200 mg2
  • Zonegran, 100mg
  • Diamox, 1,000mg3

1 Dual purpose, for hypertension and Migraine prevention.
2 Dual purpose, for depression and Migraine prevention.
3 for idiopathic intracranial hypertension, aka pseudotumor cerebri, which was triggering many of my Migraines before treatment.

Dietary Supplements:
(Total dosage per day)
  • Magnesium Oxide, 1,500mg
  • Vitamin B2, 400mg
  • Coenzyme Q10, 300mg
  • Calcium + Vitamin D, 1,200mg
    (when taking supplemental magnesium, it's necessary to take extra calcium to keep them balanced)
  • Eskimo-3 Naturally Stable Fish Oil, 3 softgels

Dietary supplements are not "created equal." Not only do the prices vary widely, but quality is an important issue. After doing some comparison shopping, here are links to the supplements I use, for headache and Migraine and other reasons, as well as supplements that have been effective for others... For info about and links to good prices on supplements, please visit our supplements page.
