Amazingly, the medications used for this purpose were all originally developed for other conditions then found to be effective as headache and / or Migraine preventives. The discovery is often made when patients taking the medications for their original purpose notice a reduction in the frequency of their headaches or Migraines. The list is ever-evolving. Even as I publish this list of medications that I've compiled, there are bound to be some that I've not read or heard about yet. When you consider the list below and the nearly endless possible combinations of these medications, it's easier to see how headache and Migraine specialists can tell us that effective preventive regimens can now be found for 95-98% of patients.
