    Try Meditations, Magnesium, Migralex, and Botox,
    nyheadache posted:
    I agree with other comments about trying meditation or biofeedback, but would also strongly recommend a magnesium supplement (400 mg of magnesium glycinate or oxide). A very safe and effective treatment for chronic headaches is injections of Botox. These are all preventive treatments, while for the acute pain of a headache Migralex may be a good choice. It is an over-the-counter medicine I patented and developed after years of research. It contains a fast acting combination of aspirin and magnesium. Migralex should be only used for an occasional headache. Please read the label information before taking it. As far as daily prescription medications, gabapentin can be effective with relatively few side effects.
