5 Hour Energy shots and migraines

I get migraines that used to send me screaming to the emergency room for a shot of Imitrex at $600 a pop. I recently found that the 5 hour energy shots are just as effective and much cheaper. So, is it the phenylalanine or the b vitamins that help so much?

I don't know why it helps but it seems to help me too. I have suffered with chronic complex migraines for 4 years now and am on daily meds now for the rest of my life but I have found that if I feel one coming on and take one 5 hour energy drink in the aura stage it can lessen the impact.
