I have migraines, and staring at electronic screens is one of my primary triggers. If I overextend gaming time or internet use, I almost always end up with a migraine, regardless of medication. Your friend would do well to try and regulate his time on electronic devices (i.e. taking regular breaks, not using them for more than a set amount of time per day, etc.). Also, I personally found PC glasses very helpful with this problem. (PC glasses are yellow-tinted to block the blue light in electronic screens, which is thought to be the main reason the screens trigger headaches and migraines. However, they do tend to run on the expensive side.)
