Effective Meds for Migraine Relief

Healthvio offers nine effective migraine medications that work to prevent and treat migraines and nausea. The Healthvio migraine-relief services include the following:

Treatment list of migraine

  • Triptans

    Triptans target a serotonin receptor that is deregulated during a migraine. There are seven medications available and they are all a little different. Examples include sumatriptan (Imitrex) and rizatriptan (Maxalt).

  • Anti-Nausea Medications

    Most anti-nausea medications block the neurotransmitter dopamine, as dopamine can become deregulated during a migraine attack. Examples include ondansetron (Zofran) and metoclopramide (Reglan).

  • Preventative Medications

    If you experience 4-5 migraines a month, you may be recommended a medication to prevent your migraines. There are three classes of preventative migraine medications that a medical provider from healthvio can prescribe they are:

    • Antihypertensives: Have the ability to regulate blood vessels around the brain, decreasing the changes in blood vessel dilation that occurs during migraine. Examples include propranolol, atenolol, nadolol, lisinopril, verapamil and candesartan.
    • Antidepressants: Help by regulating the brain’s neurotransmitters, many of which become dysregulated before and during a migraine. Examples include amitriptyline, nortriptyline, venlafaxine and duloxetine.
    • Antiepileptics: Help by regulating the electrical activity of the brain, which can also become affected by migraine. Examples include topiramate, depakote, gabapentin and zonisamide.
  • Note: If you're experiencing a severe headache or it feels unbearable, contact 911 immediately or go to your nearest emergency room or hospital.

    I’d hug the Healthvio doctor who served me if I could. He was the most helpful and thorough doctor I’ve ever worked with, and I’ve had migraines my whole life. They also shipped the prescription directly to my door. The entire medical experience was exceptional!

    My migraines have been on and off for about three years. But after meeting with the Healthvio, I got medication that works to prevent headaches. Since starting this prescription, I haven’t had one migraine!

    The difference between Healthvio and other apps I’ve used is QUALITY. My doctor at Healthvio was informative, caring, and supportive. She listened to my experiences with migraines, and we talked about different options. It was the first time a doctor took the time to really help. Get this app!

    Migraine Treatment Questions

  • Should I see a medical provider online for migraine treatment?

    If you are experiencing migraines and need medication that is stronger than over-the-counter pain relievers, you will need to see a medical provider.

    Note: Individuals experiencing frequent and intense migraines, or those with underlying medical conditions or specific concerns, may require treatment from a neurologist. Your primary care provider will refer you to a specialist if deemed necessary.

  • How can I prevent migraines?

    A medical provider may recommend preventive medication if you experience frequent migraines more than four times per month.

    In addition to medication, certain individuals may be able to prevent or minimize their migraines by identifying triggers and making lifestyle adjustments. Some typical triggers of migraines include: stress, caffeine, alcohol, certain foods.

  • What is included in the consultation fee?

    It includes a medical provider licensed in your state evaluating your Migraine questionnaire and creating your personalized treatment plan, and writing prescriptions.

    The consultation fee does not include medication(s).

    If medication is prescribed, your Healthvio provider will send the prescription(s) to a pharmacy of your choice. You will pay the pharmacy for the medication(s) and the price will depend on the pharmacy and whether you pay with insurance or out-of-pocket.
