Today was mostly consumed by a terrible migraine, but I got some advice from a fellow migraine-sufferer regarding a drug cocktail that works for him. So far it seems to be okay, although it may not be a fair test in that I was only able to try it after I was well enough to walk to Giant Eagle. Still, maybe it'll be useful to others:

  • 50mg Diphenhydramine (Findable in Benadryl-like medicines)
  • 160mg Asprin (immediate-release kind)
  • 200mg Ibuprofin
  • Some Capsaicin (various food sources, be reasonable)


having had one migraine ever, what i find to be most helpful is gunpowder mint tea and a massage to the temples and back of the neck.
