About Migraine

Migraine is not the same as a headache. It is a more complex condition, which usually causes a severe throbbing headache, often associated with sensitivity to light and nausea or vomiting. Symptoms may last for hours or days.  Some people get odd sensations several hours before the headache, like a change in mood or appetite. Others may get an “aura” 20-60 minutes before the headache. An aura most often involves a disturbance of vision, but less commonly may cause  numbness of the arm and/or face, or problems with speech. Click here to find out more about migraine auras. If you have not been previously diagnosed with migraine or you you get these symptoms for the first time, an ambulance should be called, as it could be a stroke.

Prescription medications known as “triptans” can be very effective at stopping a migraine if taken early in an attack. If you’ve been diagnosed with migraine by a doctor and have been prescribed a triptan in the past, Qoctor can provide your repeat prescription online.

Qoctor prescribes a number of triptans for migraine. Different triptans suit different people- there’s no “best triptan”.  So if the first one doesn’t work or causes side effects, it may be worth trying another one. It’s advised you try a triptan for 3 migraines before moving onto the next.
