These are medications used to stop the headache process and prevent symptoms of migraines, including pain, nausea, sound and light sensitivity, etc. They are most effective when used at the first sign of a migraine to stop the process that causes the headache pain.

The effective and safe medication to abort  migraine attack is ginger. One can take dry ginger powder in a  dose of 1 to 2 gm twice a day as a preventive measure for migraine.
