acute chronic almost daily migraines

I haven't posted for awhile because I've given up at ever finding anything to truly help PREVENT my migraines. I have approx. 20-25 migraines every month. The Zomig, Alleve, strong coffee combination will abort my migraine in 1-2 hours. That is my only relief right now. I have strong side effects from all current meds prescribed to prevent migraines - Topomax, Neurontin, Lyrica, Oxycontin. I had a spinal implant and tried it for 1 year - didn't help, so I had it removed. I recently read that Butterbar extract can help. Has anyone tried this and any other SUPPLEMENTS that can help? I'm tired of prescribed drugs that cause more side effects than they are worth. What about Acupuncture - is it recommended for chronic migraines? Botox is something I have no desire to try - poison. Feeling pretty discouraged. Shirley
