I'm living with migraine since last 20yrs.
I am afraid of taking any medicines for migraine as i feel that all such triptans or other neurology medicnes have their side effects in long run of life and addiction.
I manage my migraine with a pain killer(aspirin,diclofenac,paracetamol etc), if taken at a proper time i.e during intial phase of attack.
My frequency is 2-3 low intensity attacks/month and 1 major attaack in 3-4 months where i feel helpless as no medication works.
In my country where May-August is peak summer season and it is where my migraine frequency is increased to double and i can't perform my duties properly during this period. Please suggest how should i tackle mygrain during this period and get rid of migraine triggered with bright sunny light?
I was also told by my doctor to take "Flunarin 10mg" and "Inderal 10mg" once a day and with this medication which i take occasionally for 1-2 week and then leave, i feel better but still can't afford to go outside in summers.
