    Hi All....The migraines have begun again in sync with that time of the month for me, despite having tried taking ibuprofen daily for the last week. Maybe that protocol works for some but no for me. I will see what happens over the next week or so-if I have less migraines or the same as usual. At least I have the Maxalt to take the edge off.
