For the real bad thumpers, I also take 800 mgs of Ibuprophen, and
Phenegran for the nausea/vomiting. Vistaril and
Compazine are also anti-nausea drugs commonly used. They also make you very sleepy, which is a blessing with a migraine. Sleep is the best way to get rid of them, in my experience. I lay down with a heating pad on my head, although sometimes ice works better. Keep it dark, and quiet where you lay down.
